Rare photo of A. T. Jackson, a former newspaper reporter who became James Pearce's chief field archeologist. It was Jackson who directed most of the excavations at Caddo sites in northeast Texas that the University of Texas undertook in the 1930s. Jackson is rarely seen in archival photos, in part because it was he that usually took the photos. This photo was taken in 1931 at the J. E. Galt farm in Franklin County. TARL archives.
