Helen Hunt Jackson

Colorado College owns the single largest collection of letters, diaries, photographs, and other materials related to Helen Hunt Jackson, 19th-century novelist and Indian rights activist.

A note on HHJ's name: "The name 'Helen Hunt Jackson,' now universally applied to Jackson, includes the surnames of both her first husband, Edward Hunt, and her second husband, William Jackson. She never used this combined name either in publishing her work or in referring to herself." -- Kate Phillips, Helen Hunt Jackson: A Literary Life, University of California Press, 2003, p. 4.
