Remembering Professor Emeritus Don Jones

It is with deep regrets that we announce the December 17, 2010, death of Donald Bemis Jones, Associate Professor Emeritus of the College of St. Catherine Library. Don was the Performing Arts Librarian for twenty five years at the college (now University), retiring in 1994. He came to the College of St. Catherine in 1969 after receiving  his MA in Library Science from the University of Minnesota.  He earned both  BA and Master’s degrees in Music in the 1950’s and was active during his career in the Minnesota Library Association, the Music Library Association’s Midwest Chapter, and the Minnesota Music Librarian’s Society.

He was close to many members of the library and the Music Department, as well as the CLIC library consortium. Many of his former colleagues remember his kindness, his lively sense of humor, and his love of music. He was a friend to all who knew him, and we are saddened by his loss.
