Philip L. Jackson giving address at groundbreaking ceremony for veterans hospital on Marquam Hill, Portland

Photograph, taken on Tuesday, February 7, 1928, showing Philip L. Jackson delivering an address to the crowd at a groundbreaking ceremony for a new veterans hospital on Marquam Hill in Portland. A cropped version of this photograph was one of three that were published on Page 6 of the Oregon Journal on Wednesday, February 8, 1928, under the headline “Break Ground for Veterans’ Hospital.” This photograph had the following caption: “Marshall N. Dana, associate editor of The Journal, who was chairman, and Philip L. Jackson, publisher of the Journal, reading his address covering the history of the gift of the site by his father, the late C. S. Jackson, founder of The Journal.” The photographs accompanied a story headlined “Disabled Veteran Turns First Earth on Site of Jackson Park Hospital.” The story reported that the groundbreaking had been performed by veteran Cyril G. Manning, whose hip had been shattered by gunfire during World War I. The story also reported that the land for the hospital “was donated to the state of Oregon for the University of Oregon medical school by Mrs. C. S. Jackson and Philip L. Jackson as a memorial to the late publisher of The Journal. From the area, 25 acres were donated to the government by the regents of the medical school.” See related image Nos. 371N3011, 371N3012, 371N3013, 371N3014, and 371N3016.
