Biography of Jackson Family Patriarch to be Presented to MARC June 19

Dr. Jackson will present a copy of his book entitled, Biography of Arthur W. Jackson 1880 - 1961: An American Pioneer in Guam to the University of Guam’s R.F.T. Micronesian Area Research Center (MARC) on Tuesday, June 19 at 2 p.m. on the second floor of the MARC offices at UOG.

“These pages will inform you of life during different eras of history. They will amuse you with the life experiences that evolved over multiple generations. They will keep you in suspense as you read about the traumatic events associated with the devastation brought on by war and the hope nurtured with the re-establishment of peace. They hold still, moments strewn across decades of time. They embrace emotions borne by those whose life experiences were raw and exposed,” writes the author’s niece Dr. Lilli Ann Perez in her Foreword to the book. “This text will add to Guam’s genealogical data and to information on social supports, and surviving historical trauma.”

The community is invited to the presentation to meet author Dr. Jackson and learn more about the book and his journey of discovery while writing it. Dr. Jackson will also take book orders at the presentation and will make the book available by “print-on-demand.” After the presentation, the MARC will make a copy available in its collection for members of the community to access.
