Eleanor Jackson was born on December 20, 1912 in Kansas City, Missouri. She attended Kansas City Junior College, and entered the University of Chicago in 1943. She was married to Julian by the time she began college. Eleanor left the University of Chicago two physical science credits short of graduating in 1947.

Together the Jacksons wrote Dentists to the World: Illinois's Influence on the Growth of the Profession in 1964.
