Abstract:

Collection comprises 14 typescript copies of letters (84 pages) Kate Brigham Jackson wrote to her sister Nancy "Nannie" Gates Pratt in Savannah, Georgia, during two trips Jackson made with her husband; the first to India, Pakistan, and Cairo in 1911, the second to India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Persia (Iran) in 1926. Her descriptions of their travels are detailed, and often provide a distinctly female perspective on events. There are accounts of her husband's lectures; meetings with members of the Parsee community (Mr. Jackson was accorded celebrity status by the Parsees); descriptions of Zoroastrian ceremonies for marriage, burial, and navjote; and their attendance at commencement ceremonies, charitable events, and exhibitions. She describes her servants and their families in great detail, often comparing them to African Americans who would have served her in the South, and outlines their travel by steamer, train, camel, and car, with in-depth discussion of the "discomfort, even primitiveness," of travel in Iran. She comments on the lack of racial mixing and the impact of British rule in India, shopping, dancing and balls, women who smoke, and schools for girls in Iran. The couple socialized and visited with English governmental representatives, the Gaekwar of Baroda, Dr. Maneckji Dhalla, and Lady Ratan Tata. Among the sites they visited were the Taj Mahal, the caves of Ajanta, and the Golden Temple. Acquired as part of the Sallie Bingham Center for Women's History and Culture.
