Philip (Pete) Jackson Collection, Rafts, Page 1

Philip (Pete) Jackson is the son of a prominent Sunshine Coast logging company owner Lawrence (Al) S. Jackson and his wife Charlotte. Pete was born in 1931 and brought up in Wilson Creek. He worked for the family company Burns and Jackson, later Jackson Brothers, at Wilson Creek and in various logging camps around the Sunshine Coast, up Jervis and Toba Inlets, Vancouver Island and the Central Coast of BC.

L.S. Jackson, under the name "Al," wrote articles titled "A Logger's Tales" for the local newspaper in the early 1950s.
