Oral History Interview with Ralph W. Jackson
Ralph W. Jackson was born in Houma, Louisiana, on August 30, 1918. He moved around with his family so his father could find work, but eventually settled in Garrison, Texas. When he was old enough, he went into the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). There, he worked the fields, on the roads, for the camp doctor, and in the kitchen. After the CCC, he served in World War II. During the time of the interview Mr. Jackson lived in Crockett, Texas.
