William Henry Jackson (April 4, 1843 – June 30, 1942) was an American painter, Civil War veteran, geological survey
photographer and an explorer. During the War of the Rebellion he served  in the 12th Vermont Infantry. In 1867 in
Omha Nebraska he became interested in the photography business. In 1870 he was part of the Yellowstone Geological
Expedition as the offical photographer. The photographs played an important role in helping establish Yellowstone as
the first national park. He opened a studio in Denver, Colorado that specialized in landscape and scenic views. He was
commissioned to photograph for western state exhibitions at the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893, where he
produced a final portfolio of views. From 1890 to 1892 Jackson produced photographs for several railroad lines.
Jackson joined the Detroit Publishing Company in 1898 as president bringing with him an estimated 10,000 negatives  
from which they produced pictures ranging from postcards to mammoth-plate panoramas. In World War I, and the
introduction of new and cheaper printing methods used by competing firms, the Detroit Publishing Company went into
receivership in 1924.

Uncertain how many times he was in St. Augustine but from the pictures you can tell at least twice: one 1889-1897(since
the picture is entitled Cordova hotel its earliest date has to be 1889) and one is dated 1902.

The Library of Congress holds: a portion of the working files of the Detroit Publishing Company (including 20,000 prints
and 30,000 glass-plate negatives, many by Jackson); 800 prints plus many glass plates from Central America and the
Caribbean; 350 film negatives of India, Far East, Siberia.
