The fonds (accession 23-2000) consists of administrative files and correspondence with the speakers who participated in the Shakespeare Seminar held at the Stratford Festival (Stratford, Ont.) between 1961 and 1976. Sponsored by a consortium of Canadian Universities, the Shakespeare Seminar was organized by the Department of Extension at McMaster University under Jackson's directions. The speakers include Shakespearian scholars (e.g. F.W. Bateson, L.C. Knights, and J.F. Kermode), critics and celebrities (e.g. Anthony Burgess, Robertson Davies and Northrop Frye), and actors and directors (e.g. Sir Tyrone Guthrie, Robin Phillips, and William Hutt).
