Austin television personality Carolyn Jackson interviews golf legend Jimmy Demaret at the opening of Austin's Onion Creek Club. Demaret tells the story behind the creation of Onion Creek Club and his role in designing the original 18-hole golf course. KTBC General Manager Rush Evans joins the interview to discuss golf, the evolution of the PGA Tour and Demaret's recent absence from it.

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.
