W.A.Douglas Jackson,

long-time Professor of Geography at the University of Washington (and still teaching) and founder of the Canadian Studies Center, celebrated his 80th birthday among colleagues and friends at a reception in the Burke Museum on the UW campus. The picture shows the honoree responding to the many congratulatory speeches (including by several past and present students, representatives of the Canadian Government and the University of Washington). The Burke Museum has been the grateful recipient of many pieces of Northwest and West Coast Canadian Art donated by Douglas Jackson (incl. the painting on the picture).
