Philip Mills Jones (1870-1916)

Jones was a physician who completed his medical training at the Long Island Hospital in 1891. After practicing in Brooklyn for nine years he moved to California and, sponsored by Hearst, spent two years collecting archaeological and ethnographic objects here and elsewhere in North America for the University. In 1902, he returned to medicine, working in public health and serving as editor of the California State Journal of Medicine.
