John T Jones, Ph.D. (Street Articles Author)

The author is retired being too old to do anything useful. He was an engineering professor at Iowa State University, an executive for a Fortune 500 Company, a writer of technical books and novels, and he dabbles in art, studies birds, takes tons of photographs some of which he paints in landscapes, does church work, takes care of his aging wife and other such mundane things.

He has written many hundreds of articles on many subjects of which over half-million people have actually read. He was editor of an international engineering magazine. Jones was born in Salt Lake City and served with the 17th Infantry Regimental Combat Team in Korea (1951-52) as forward observer (mortars), platoon sergeant and field first sergeant. He graduated from the University of Utah in 1957 in engineering. He worked at Coors Porcelain (now Coors Ceramics) in Golden, Colorado working on technical ceramics for the aerospace, nuclear, electronic industries, etc. He returned to the U of U in 1962 and graduated with a Ph.D. in 1965.

Jones worked for Vesuvius Crucible Company in Pittsburgh before taking a teaching position at Iowa State University. He stayed there for eight years leaving to go back into industry so he could make enough money to send his kids to college. He worked in CA and PA before moving to New Jersey where he worked and lived for 20 years. He retired to AZ for the "good life" but a dangerous heart surgery (according to his doctor sons)dictated that he an his wife move closer to a child so they moved to Idaho. However, the surgery failed to kill him so he may as well have stayed in AZ where the weather was much kinder.

Jones was an avid scouter but now he can't keep up with the boys. He can't even keep up with the old lady next door. But he likes marketing so he keeps pushing the system. He now has a big interest in health care and nutrition. Please take a look a his web sites.
