A small group of VIP correspondence includes letters from Mary McLeod Bethune, Edward W. Brooke, W.E.B. DuBois (copy of letter to another individual), Michael S. Dukakis, Lena Horne, Robert F. Kennedy, Ada MacLeish, Arhibald MacLeish, Isabel (Mrs. Adam Clayton) Powell, Dan Quayle, Barbara Summers, Mary Church Terrell, and Harrison A. Williams, Jr.
The very small selection of personal correspondence contains letters pertaining to educational opportunities, particularly a letter from Charles Houston regarding the money paid by the state of Virginia for her to attend graduate school at Columbia. P.B. Young of the Norfolk "Journal and Guide" is also a correspondent.
Original writing in the collection include drafts of her book on baseball player Don Newcombe, her masters thesis on John Milton, and various play adaptations, articles, poetry, speeches and short stories, as well as college course notes, notes for classes she taught and notes about the teaching of black history and culture.
The bulk of the collection consists of topical files related to her teaching career, particularly at Middlesex County College, Edison, N.J. and the Kilmer Job Corps Center of Edison, N.J.; her active roles in the National Council of Teachers and the Conference on College Composition and Communication; the African-American experience; and the work of Jackson and her husband J. Earle Jackson in civil rights and social issues in Plainfield, N.J. Other topics include the First Unitarian Churches of Richmond, Va., and Plainfield, N.J., L. Douglas Wilder, VIrginia Union University., Roland Hayes, Langston Hughes, John Keats, Alice Dunbar Nelson and Maggie Lena Walker.
The collection also contains address books, calendar and appointment books; recipes; routine correspondence, cards and invitations; material regarding her membership and activities in the Delta Sigma Theta sorority; index cards; subject files consisting chiefly of clippings; obituaries and funeral programs for friends, praticularly Spottswood W. Robinson; diplomas, resolutions and plaques; postcards; and papers concerning her travel abroad.
Other items of interest include the World War II diary and letters of African American Granver Paige Thomas of the 1313th Engineer Regiment; Ervin L. Jordan's "Blacks and the University of Virginia: an overview 1819-1987."
The collection also contains four videocassettes : "Our Inspiration, the story of Maggie Lena Walker," "The Wilder inauguration, January 13, 1990," "Who is? Roland Hayes," and "Alice Jackson Stuart," a speech by Julian Houston; two compact disks "With good reason, race and admissions"; and two filmstrips "Outstanding Americans of Negro origin" and " A trip with UNICEF."
