Rita Clements was the First Lady of Texas while her husband, William Perry "Bill" Clements, Jr. served as the state's 42nd (1979-1983) and 44th (1987 – 1991) governor. In this news piece, Austin television personality Carolyn Jackson interviews Mrs. Clements at the Governor's Mansion. The conversation covers a variety of topics including: Governor Clements' character and campaign; planned restoration of the 1856 mansion; current topics and events in the Texas Legislature; the state of eldercare; and recreation and leisure time for Texas' Governor and First Lady.
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.
