Born July 1, 1899 in Princeton, New Jersey, Jones' life was indelibly influenced when he accompanied his parents, Henry Sr.
and Anna Jones on a world lecture tour from 1908 to 1910.
Henry was a big fan of professional baseball, and his favorite team was the New York Giants, with Christy Mathewson as his favorite player.
He took piano lessons, as well, but didn't think he was very good at it so he quit.
During the war, Jones joined the OSS along with girlfriend Sophia Hapgood.
The Cold War brought the Soviets into competition as a new world power and Indy found himself the focal point of their quest for Akator.
At one time Henry tried to break the landspeed record and on another occasion he attempted to send his dog to the moon.
Still living in the city of Oxford, Miss Seymour was introduced to the boy, then declined Professor Jones' offer. It would be nine days of study before Indiana saw his first adventure.
They crossed the Mediterranean and landed at Alexandria in Egypt before moving on to Cairo.
Their romance led to marriage in 1926, but a plane crash took Deirdre's life.
In the years leading up to World War II, Jones secured a teaching position at Marshall College.
