Memorable Manitobans: Franklin Winthrop “Frank” Jones (1915-2007)


Born at St. Vital on 1 October 1915, son of Harold and Dora Jones, he was educated at the University of Manitoba, the University of Alberta (Doctor of Dentistry diploma), and the University of Minnesota (Doctor of Dental Surgery, 1937). In 1940, he enlisted in the Army Dental Corps and was posted to Rivers where he treated the teeth of soldiers. After his discharge in 1945, he returned to private dental practice in Winnipeg, from which he retired in 1981. He served as president of the Manitoba Dental Association. He was a member of the Winnipeg Canoe Club, Niakwa Country Club, and the Winnipeg Winter Club. He died at Winnipeg on 18 January 2007.
