Carolyn Jackson interviews the then-owner of Enchanted Rock, Charles Moss, in this footage. They discuss myths about the rock, such as the notion that it is actually a fallen star. They also review a little of the history about it as well as what typical campers bring to the rock and who keeps it clean. Moss notably tells the story of President Lyndon B. Johnson climbing the rock on New Year’s Day in 1966.
Carolyn Jackson was on the air in Austin as a daytime lifestyle show host during the late 1960s and 1970s. She began her broadcast career when she joined KTBC in 1968 as the host of Women's World, which was later renamed The Carolyn Jackson Show. In the late 1970s, Jackson moved the show to KTVV (now NBC-affiliate KXAN).
These excerpts represent a small sample of Jackson's work. The bulk of her collection is made up of interviews with Texas personalities or from Hollywood film release press junkets, but the collection also includes feature stories, outtakes, and behind the scenes clips.
