Jackson centennial: This month will be the 100th anniversary of the birth of Henry M. Jackson.

To mark the occasion, Herald reporter Jerry Cornfield is gathering stories of those who crossed paths, even briefly, with the Everett native who grew up to become a powerful U.S. senator and one of the most significant political figures in the state’s history.

If you have a funny anecdote or a memorable photo to share, please send Cornfield an email at jcornfield@heraldnet.com with your contact information.

If you do not have access to email, call 425-387-5167 or 360-352-8623.
