Harry Donald Jones
Born in Vincennes, Indiana on August 13, 1906, Harry Donald Jones was educated at Iowa University, Harvard University, and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. He was based in Iowa until about 1941, living in Des Moines and Cedar Rapids. Jones served in the Navy during World War II through 1946 and then moved to San Francisco where he had a successful career as a photographer.
Harry Jones continued to paint but in a style that was a combination of surrealism and geometric abstraction. His San Francisco studio located at 450 Battery Street was in the old “Monkey Block” (now the Transamerica Pyramid). He died in Salt Lake City, Utah on January 16, 1995.
