Robert E. Jones Papers, Mss 530

Description

Robert E. Jones was a longtime resident of Missoula, Montana and served as president of the Missoula Chamber of Commerce. He was active in the public campaign to build three new bridges over the Clark Fork River, influencing the growth of Missoula. This collection contains general information, correspondence, committee materials, newspaper clippings, and photographs related to the Missoula County Citizens Bridge Committee, Phi Sigma Kappa, and the Missoula Brewing Company.

The collection contains general information, correspondence, newspaper clippings related to Robert E. Jones’ involvement in the Missoula County Citizens Bridge Committee and Phi Sigma Kappa. There is also a series containing photographs of early Missoula, and fraternities Delta Sigma and Phi Sigma Kappa.

There is a small amount of material from the Missoula Brewing Company in the collection. Jones may have had this because his father, George Jones, came to Missoula in the late 1800s and worked at the Missoula Brewing Company from 1904 until prohibition halted its operations in 1919. Jones' father-in-law, William Steinbrenner, was from a long line of owners of the Missoula Brewing Company and was president and general manager of the company.
