HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — A longtime professor and alumnus of Alabama A&M University has died.
In a Facebook post, the University said Dr. George E. Jones, an alumnus of the Class of 1959, died April 25 in Huntsville.
After graduating, Jones found his way back to A&M, teaching in the industrial technology department. His greatest claim to fame, however – the creation of University logos.
He was predeceased by his wife, Dr. Bessie Jones, Dean of the former College of Arts and Sciences (now College of Business and Public Affairs) and Vice President of Academic Affairs.
