During the Great Depression, Mr. Jones founded both the Canal Barge Company and the law firm now known as Jones Walker, one of the largest and most respected firms of the American South. During World War II, Mr. Jones took a hiatus from law practice to join the U.S. Department of State, serving as Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs during the dynamic post-war period. A devoted Tulanian, Mr. Jones helped shape the University’s future as President of its Board of Administrators for more than a decade until his death in 1963. Jones Hall, the Law School’s former building, is named in his honor
