"It think it's great that there's been so much interest in this,"
said John Q. Barrett, a professor at St. John's University School
of Law and noted Jackson scholar. Barrett made a passing mention
about the omission of the historic marker in a talk last Thursday
during a panel discussion on Jackson's time in Albany. A swirl of
behind-the-scenes activity with civic leaders and the law school
was set in motion.
"There's something great about reading a marker of a young nobody
who went onto greatness in a spot that everyone in the neighborhood
is familiar with," said Barrett, who has written extensively about
Jackson's career and serves as a fellow at the Robert H. Jackson
Center in Jamestown, Chautauqua County.
