    Biography/Administrative History

    Librarian, archivist, bibliographer and historian, Charles E. Jones (1932 - ) received his education at the Bethany-Peniel College in Oklahoma and the Universities of Michigan (M.A.L.S.) and Wisconsin (M.S. and Ph.D.). His Ph.D. dissertation, published as Perfectionist Persuasion: The Holiness Movement and American Methodism, 1867–1936 (1974), provides background for understanding the sociological and ecclesiological reasons for the rise of the Holiness movement. He has worked as a librarian and archivist at Nazarene Theological Seminary, Park College, the University of Michigan, and Brown University and as a professor of history at Houghton College. In February 2006, a symposium was held at Fuller Theological Seminary in celebration of his scholarly achievement and his gift to the seminary.
