Ernest Sandford Jackson was born in Sandford, Victoria, on 18 July 1860. He studied at the Geelong Grammar School and then at the Trinity College, University of Melbourne, in Victoria, Australia. He graduated in Medicine in 1881 and was Medical Superintendent of the Brisbane Hospital from 1883-1898. He then entered private practice as a consultant surgeon in Queensland, having developed interests in several areas, including cancer and mosquito-borne diseases. Following the outbreak of World War I, he enlisted in the Australian Army Medical Corps in 1914, was commissioned as a Major, and posted to Cairo, Egypt. He was invalided back to Britain in 1915 and then to Australia, returning in early 1916. He ceased full-time Army service. He was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel and served part-time from 1916 until he retired from military service in 1919. In the meantime, he continued in private practice in Australia, where he served on various government and professional bodies. He wrote on the history of sea exploration and medicine, which was the topic of the inaugural Jackson Lecture, named in his honour by the Queensland Branch of the British Medical Association, and delivered by him in 1931. Jackson retired in 1934 to undertake more agricultural pursuits and died in Brisbane, Queensland, on 29 June 1938. Ernest Sandford Jackson was a founder of a number of professional medical organisations, including the Queensland Branch of the British Medical Association, the Australasian College of Surgeons, and the University of Queensland Medical School. He will be remembered as one of the significant medical pioneers of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries in Australia.
