Dates of existence


Stanley Jones spent his formative years studying geography and anthropology at University College of Wales, Aberystwyth, under Fleure, and then at University of California, Berkeley, under Sauer. He came to the then University College, Dundee, from the University of Bristol in 1946, and was effectively the founder of the Geography Department in Queen's College, Dundee. In 1968 he was appointed to the founding Chair of Geography at the University of Dundee, and during the early 1970s he became the first Dean of the Faculty of Environmental Studies. He retained his interest in cultural geography throughout his career, and, following his retirement in 1975, continued his research into the Dundee and Newtyle Railway.
