William Henry Jackson (1843-1942), a Civil War veteran, was renowned as a
photographer in the Hayden Geological Survey of 1871, which led to the
creation of Yellowstone National Park. He had a long and fruitful career as
a photographer of the American West. He participated in a number of events
throughout the USA to preserve the legacy of the trails. From 1929 until his
death, Jackson was Research Secretary of the Oregon Trail Memorial
Association (OTMA), creating maps of pioneer trail routes and paintings of
historic western scenes. His iconic photographs have been reproduced in
numerous books and magazines over the years.
