Dr. Jones received his undergraduate and graduate degrees from Indiana University School of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation (now named the School of Public Health) in 1960 and 1961. Dr. Davies was an advisor and professor and served as Dr. Mosely’s advisor and a key member of his dissertation committee.
