To document Jacobson's career effectively, the OU museum is creating a database to catalog Jacobson's output. The catalog will provide an invaluable research tool for future scholars, White said.

“Jacobson was fairly successful selling his work during his lifetime, but many of those pieces remain in private hands. We're hoping this call for Jacobson pieces will help us to locate many of the important works not in public museums. Including those paintings in the exhibition and accompanying catalog will contribute significantly to the study of Jacobson's career,” White said.

People who have information or collectors who want to participate in the project are urged to contact the museum by emailing maw@ou.edu or calling 325-3450.
