John Jones was admitted to Balliol as a Commoner in 1961. He was elected to a Junior Research Fellowship in Biological Science in 1966 and has been Official Fellow and Tutor in Organic Chemistry, and Archivist since 1968 and 1981 respectively. Dean 1972-2002, he has been Vice-Master since 2002. His other publications include The Chemical Synthesis of Peptides (OUP, 1991).Review:
`In his second, revised edition John Jones shows the same sure touch that distinguished his earlier work as he carries the college's story beyond the second world war. His book reminds us of the strength and civilised charm of the collegiate university.'
Chris Patten, The Spectator
`This book should be read by anyone interested in the development of the British University.'
Reba N. Soffer, American Historical Review
`John Jones has produced an admirable book, as entertaining as it is erudite, and written with respect but never cloying reverence for the institution on which he has become the greatest living expert. Enthusiasm for Balliol is like Adlai Stevenson's view of flattery: it is all right provided
you do not inhale. Dr Jones manages to be an addict without being an inhaler.'
Roy Jenkins, Observer
`Jones includes some excellent chapters on life and times at various periods of Balliol's long history, succeeding in the difficult task of making visible the tenor of ordinary existence, with eating, and drinking, and even a certain amount of work.'
Jasper Griffin, The Spectator
`John Jones's book, part of an admirable OUP series, reminds us of the strength and civilised charm of the collegiate university.'
