Honors and awards, 1955-2005
Boxes 3 - 4

Scope and Content Note

The series consists of materials representing honors and awards both awarded to Jones from 1955-2002 and named after him and granted to others after his death until 2005. Materials include certificates, programs, invitations, printed materials, and photographs. Included are the honorary degrees Jones received from Mercer University (1981), Emory University (1982), Morehouse College (1982), Brenau College (1984), and Wesleyan College (1984). Awards named for Jones include Emory University's Boisfeuillet Jones Medal, which is often granted to honorees by Jones' daughter and Emory University Board of Trustees member, Laura Jones Hardman.

The bulk of Jones' honors and awards are related to his position as president of the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation (previously the Trebor Foundation), including the Fulton-Atlanta Community Action Center John H. Calhoun Award for Outstanding Community Service (1995), the National Council of Foundations Distinguished Grant Maker Award (1987), and the Georgia Chapter of the National Society of Fund Raising Executives Lifetime Achievement Award (1996). Of particular note is the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center Distinguished Service Award, which Jones received in 1986.
