Anne Bauer Jackson, M.D. Memorial Honors Book Scholarship

The Anne Bauer Jackson, M.D. Memorial Honors Book Scholarship was established in 1995 to honor the life and work of Dr. Jackson.

This scholarship was established in memory of Anne Bauer Jackson, M.D. by members of her family. Dr. Jackson, a native of Terre Haute, Indiana, attended Indiana State University; and earned the B.A. and M.A. in French, an M.S. in Microbiology, and M.D. degrees at Indiana University; with a specialty in neurology at the University of New Mexico.

Dr. Jackson practiced medicine at Albuquerque and Farmington, New Mexico; Silverton, Colorado; and Indianapolis, Indiana. She died at the age of 39.
