Henry Jackson: Papers
Scope and Contents
The bulk of the papers concern two subjects: the parliamentary bills of 1876 for the establishment of statutory commissions to consider the transfer of significant parts of the endowments of Oxford and Cambridge colleges to the use of the respective universities; and the scholarly criticism that in 1891 greeted F.G. Kenyon's edition of Aristotle's treatise on the Athenian constitution. There are also short series of letters from Jackson to two members of the Library's staff, C.E. Sayle and H.T. Francis.
