Honoré Jaxon (William Henry Jackson) 1861-1952

 

The life story of Honoré Joseph Jaxon born William Henry Jackson (1861-1952) is inextricably linked to the history of Canada, to the story of missing archives, to the history of the early North American Baha'is, the history of early social justice movements. Frgaments of the "missing" archives have been partially restored through the work of countless historians, artists, social scientists, cultural workers and journalists. Jaxon adopted the cause of the Metis and worked tirelessly to build an archives that literally weighed three tons when he was evicted from his New York apartment in 1951 at the age of 90. His archives was almost completely destroyed and he died with a broken spirit three weeks later.
