Series I. Photograph Album, 1936-1943.
The album contains Jones's photographs, starting from his arrival at the Columbia College campus in October 1936. At the top right corner of each page, Jones notes the month and year. He includes page headings and captions as well as lists of names of those featured in the photographs. He placed a Sigma Chi designation next to names of his fraternity brothers. The album ends in June 1940. On the next to last page, there is a photograph of Lieutenant Jones (in uniform) at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, California. Based on the inscription in the back – Madame Chiang Kai-Shek (Soong Mei-ling) was at the Hotel – the photograph is from April 1943.
