Clem'ents Library Contains
Works by John Paul Jones

One of the major collections of
historical works relating to John
Paul Jones, American Naval hero
and patriot, can be found in the
William L. Clements Library, ac-
cording to Robert B. Brown, cur-
ator of books at the library.
Today is the 200th anniversary
of the birth of the famous Amer-
Eye Witness Accounts
In the Clements Library are
more than 50 works dealing with
the life and accomplishments of
Jones, Brown said. These range:
from eye-witness accounts of the
great seaman's deeds to his col-
lected writings, published a num-
ber of years after his death.
"John Paul Jones is a timely
hero," Brown said, "He is one
historical personage who is a hero

ous, a maple leaf, and the name of
one of "Joyius" Adams. Other tab-
les have teeth, a telescope, a fish-
bowl, and four-leaf clovers.
War Period Included
Another era ended when the
University went to war, and this
is amply recorded.
When the Japanese language
school closed, the last class chose
this way to record their names for
posterity, and they are carved
both in English and Japanese
characters . Members of the Navy
ROTC program have recorded
their names, too.
Today the tradition begun fifty
years ago in a local saloon goes on,
for each year the graduating class
_,arves its initials on t!ie table-
tops of the Union taproom.
But now there are no more free

to both Americans and Russians."
Records in the Clements Li-
brary tell of Jones' career after
the American Revolution when the
naval genius became a rear ad-
miral in the navies of Catherine
the Great of Russia and won for
her a series of sweeping victories
over the Turks.
Unbeatable at Sea
"The nearest thing to a Nelson
in American naval history, Jones
was apparently unbeatable at sea,"
Brown commented.
"Jones is the only real life hero
whose deeds can outshine Admir-
al Hornblower, of popular fiction
fame. The greater were the odds
against him, the brighter his gen-
ius seemed to shine."
Contemporary accounts in care-
fully preserved books in the li-
brary indicate that although Jones
was a hero to the Americans, Rus-
sians, and French, he was no hero
to the British. John Paul Jones
the Pirate is still a bogeyman in
English historical writings, Brown
Successfully Harassed English
This may be because Jones was
the only opponent of the English
to successfully harass the English
coast from the time of the Span-
ish Armada to that of Hitler's
Luftwaffe, he declared.
A great deal of work still re-
mains to be done in recording the
complete history of Jones, Brown
said. Much material is ready for
the historian in the Clements col-
lections, he said.
