Jackson Clifford MacDonald (October 12, 1901 - August 16, 1963) was an American businessman and philanthropist. Born in Alexandria, Virginia, MacDonald spent his childhood traveling the United States with his widowed mother, Edwina DeVin MacDonald, who was a writer. He attended Columbia University where he studied journalism. After graduating from Columbia, he found a job as a reporter for the New York Daily News. Not long afterward he moved to Florida where he worked at the Tampa Tribune, the St. Petersburg Times, and the St. Petersburg Independent. He started and published The Spectator in St. Petersburg for a few years before founding the MacDonald Printing Company in Tampa in 1926. MacDonald managed the MacDonald Printing Company until he suffered a debilitating stroke in 1959. In 1953 MacDonald founded a center for educating handicapped children, which became a model for similar centers nationwide. His work with handicapped children (his son, George McDonald, was handicapped) earned him the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1963.
