Five years ago The James-Younger Gang acknowledged Professor Cathy
Jackson of Norfolk State University, awarding her the Milton Perry Award for her research and writing about Jesse James’ treatment in the press in the past 125 years.

This coming Tuesday, January 11, 2011 at 9 pm EST, Cathy will appear on the Travel Channel’s program Mysteries at the Museum. Cathy says, “I am discussing the outlaw’s legend to highlight one of James’ gun holsters, which is housed at the National Museum of Crime and Punishment in Washington, D.C. The museum is well-known to lovers of real-life crime dramas as the site where John Walsh’s America’s Most Wanted is filmed.”

We’re looking forward to seeing Cathy. We’re particularly interested to see how Cathy is treated by the program, since the James Preservation Trust formerly had raised issues about the authenticity of a firearm at the Crime Museum purported to have belonged to Jesse James, that had been on loan from a source known for making questionable claims.
Our confidence rests with Cathy. Make a date to watch her.
