Dr. Alfred Edison Jackson, 62, an orthopedic surgeon who practiced in Arlington from 1949 until his retirement in 1970, was killed Tuesday in an accident on his farm, "Glendower," near Scottsville, Va.

Albemarle County Sheriff George Bailey said Dr. Jackson fell off the tractor he was operating and was run over by a bushlog, a piece of equipment used to clear brush.

Dr. Jackson had lived at the farm since his retirement. In addition to his private practice in Arlington, he had served for 25 years as chief of orthopedic surgery at Arlington Hospital and was clinical professor of orthopedic surgery at Georgetown University Medical School during the same period.

He was born in Memphis, Tenn., and graduated from the University of Tennessee, where he also earned a medical degree. During World War II, he served with the Army.

From 1945 until 1949, Dr. Jackson practiced orthopedic surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.

He had been a senior warden at Christ Episcopal Church in Glendower, Va.

Survivors include his wife, the former Kathleen Beach, of "Glendower;" four sons, Alfred E. Jr., of Annandale, Dr. Charles B., of Great Falls, Va., John G., of Reston, and George T., of Paris, France; a daughter, Kathleen B. Lanigan of Thomasville, Ga.; five sisters, Mary Richardson of Grand Junction, Tenn., Madeline Jones of Nashville, Tenn., Rubye Norvell and Lenna Armistead, both of Olive Branch, Miss., and Lora Freeman of Atlanta; a brother, George, of Hot Springs, Ark., and 10 grandchildren.
