Scope and Contents

This collection documents activities and events at the College of William and Mary during the career of W. Melville Jones. It is primarily composed of material collected in scrapbooks.

The first scrapbook was digitized and the original returned to the donor. For the digital scans of the first scrapbook, the papers are arranged as a model of the original volume. The papers are arranged chronologically with two loose photographs without a date filed at the end. Identification numbers are listed on the back of each photocopied page for association with the digital file. The digital files were printed and are available for use by researchers. A detailed description of each page is available in the inventory section of this finding aid.

The second scrapbook is maintained for the most part in its original order and format, though some blank pages have been removed from the volume. All loose material in the scrapbook was rehoused in folders and can be found in box 1 along with the photocopied pages of the digitized scrapbook. Box 1 also includes five folders containing information related to Dr. Jone's personal and professional interests.
