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.
