L. E. Jones

The L. E. Jones collection is devoted to calculating devices and thus represents a particular type of technology rather than a department or discipline.

Many of the instruments in this collection were not used at the University of Toronto, but were collected privately by professor of Mechanical Engineering L. E. (Ted) Jones (d. June 23rd, 1999.)

In 2002 Professor Jones’ collection was donated to the IHPST by his son James Llewellyn Jones. The collection remains a living collection, and the UTSIC will gratefully accept donations of mechanical calculating instruments to augment the collection.
