Highlights of the University Archives & Special Collections
- Chevalier Jackson
Some of Jackson's work has been memorialized in a book, "Swallow: Foreign Bodies, Their Ingestion, Inspiration, and the Curious Doctor Who Extracted Them," by Mary Cappello. Jefferson archivist Michael Angelo participated with the author in an interview about Dr. Jackson for the WHYY radio program Radio Times (March 2011). Listen to the interview (mp3).
