NotesRare survival of a correspondence study course created by Franklin Paul Jackson, designed to make every home student into a successful stock market investor, inscribed on the first leaf, "To Roger Bennett, Best Regards Franklin Paul Jackson".
Issued as a series of loose leaf sheets, with graphs, tables, and charts, the course promises to provide "complete study materials such as text books and explanations of principles and past history stock market charts for analysis and study, as well as guidance in your study and supplementary reading." (Mechanics introduction). It comprises three sections: one on technical analysis, one discussing "Fundamentals", and one on the mechanics of charting.
The earliest version of this course we have traced is dated 1946 and attributed to the Stock Market Institute. Jackson also authored Selecting the Right Stock (1944), The Golden Harvest (1959), and The IS method (1975). The present work was re-published as recently as 2001 by McGraw-Hill.
