| July/August 1968


Donald R. Jackson, born October 30, 1893, Kokomo, Indiana, passed away January 1, 1968 at home. Survivors are: wife, Myrtle Gladys; son, Robert; and three grandsons.

Mr. Jackson served a 5 cents per hour apprenticeship to become a machinist and tool and die maker. He served in France during World War I - railroad outfit (steam engines). Did just about everything in the machinery line from working on race cars to being a purchasing agent. Built his own prototype of a steam engine at the age of 12 and it worked.

Mr. Jackson was a member of the Pioneer Engineer Club of Indiana Inc., for many years and had on display each year a Heider tractor. Also, was on hand for any work that was to be done at the show. He was a good man on steam, air and the old Stanley Steamer.

The club will miss him at the show each year.
