Born on April 4, 1843, in Keeseville, New York, William Henry Jackson was an American photographer and artist who started his career in a studio retouching photographs at the young age of 15. Working at diverse photography related jobs and building up a portfolio, Jackson eventually found himself shifting into publishing at the Detroit Publishing Company.
Jackson sold his entire collection, consisting of about 10,000 negatives, in 1897 to the company and in 1898 Jackson became president, with archives which produced pictures arraying from postcards to mammoth-plate panoramas.
The Caroline Bowersox Collection of William Henry Jackson contains photochroms made by Detroit Publishing Company from photographs taken by William Henry Jackson.
