Born in Pittsburgh in 1865, Chevalier Jackson was educated at Western University of Pennsylvania (later the University of Pittsburgh) and Jefferson Medical College, where he graduated in 1886. Upon graduation, Jackson opened his practice in Pittsburgh and turned to the study of laryngology, reading and attending the clinics presented by Drs. Jacob Solis-Cohen, Charles Eucharist de Medicis Sajous, and Louis Jurist. He also spent time in England with the British specialist Sir Morell McKenzie. From 1887 on, Jackson practiced his specialty and in 1910 was appointed Professor of Laryngology at the University of Pittsburgh. "His appointment was largely based on this efforts introducing and improving broncho- and oesophagoscopy, particularly the removal of foreign bodies in the respiratory and gastric tract, as well as his work on cancer in the larynx." Jackson also held appointments in Jefferson Medical College, Univeristy of Pennsylvania Graduate School, Temple University, and Women's Medical College of Pennsylvania, serving as President of the last institution from 1935-1941. Jackson introduced many improved techniques for brochoscopy, oesophagoscopy and gastroscopy, and was successful in removing dangerous foreign bodies with the medical instruments and techniques he designed. His campaign regarding the dangers to children of swallowing lye led to the passage of the Federal Caustic Labeling Acts of 1927. Jackson was a prolific writer, authoring twelve textbooks, four monographs, and over four hundred medical articles.
