On the Researchchannel, you can view an hour and a halflecture by
Scott Jackson on Business and Economics
The lecture is part of the Profiles in American Enterprise Series,
featuring leading American entrepeneurs.
For such a successful guy, there isnt a lot written about Jackson
in the press. A search of the LA public library databases(Gales bio
directory, Biography and Genealogy Master index, Business Journals,
etc.) turned up only one article in the New York Times about his
tenure at Republicbank in Dallas. You can find that at The New York
Times, Sept 16,
1986 p34(N) col 6 (1 col in).
Infotrac also lists The Denver Business Journals article in 2001
a merger of ARC, in which Jackson is mentioned. Palladium Inc. of
Denver, which advises real estate investors on how to maximize their
investments, recently hooked up with Denver-based Affordable
Residential Communities, a developer of manufactured housing
to create a vehicle for that kind of investing nationwide. You can
the full article in the June 22, 2001 issue.
I searched for an independently prepared business bio on Jackson, but
was only able to locate the one prepared by ARC. I hope this is
sufficient for your purposes. For the generous fee that you offered,
you really deserved more sources, but an extensive search
didn't turn up any. However, if you wish me to track down and
confirm anything, or clarify it further, I hope you will not hesitate
to ask before you rate this answer. Sincerely, cath-ga
