Born at Tunstall, Staffordshire, Jones entered Emmanuel College, Cambridge in 1921, took a First in Natural Sciences after two years and then, after an additional two years, a First in Economics. He continued at Christ’s as a graduate student for a year, and won both the Adam Smith Prize and a two-year Rockefeller Fellowship, to Harvard in the first year and then in the second year to several other universities, including Stanford, where his thesis was written. He was awarded a PhD from Cambridge in the autumn of 1928 but soon afterwards was killed in a motorcar accident in Rouen.
