Augustus Jackson (born April 16, 1808) was an African-American candy confectioner from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Jackson served as a chef in the White House during the 1820s. While not the inventor of or first person to serve ice cream in the United States, Jackson is often called the "father of ice cream" because he pioneered many of its modern manufacturing methods.
