Oxford Brookes awarded Beer Hunter’s papers

The executors of the estate of the late Michael Jackson, known as “The Beer Hunter,” have donated the contents of his office to the Oxford Brookes University Library.

Don Marshall, of Oxford Brookes University Library, said: “We are very excited to receive this gift of the books and papers of ‘The Beer Hunter.’ The Michael Jackson Collection will work in parallel with the National Brewing Library, already located in Oxford Brookes University Library and jointly managed by members of the Library and the Institute of Brewing & Distilling. It will also complement other special collections in food and drink – one of the key areas of research excellence in the University.”
