Dr. Lynn F. Jones teaches various art history courses. She earned her M.A. and the University of Davis and her Ph.D. at the University of Oregon. At both Universities, she specialized in Modern Art and Modern Architecture.
At the University of Davis, she chose to study under the direction of Joseph A. Baird Jr., a scholar who had previously taught at Harvard University and was an expert on California Architecture. Under his supervision she focused on Dean and Dean, an architectural firm working in the Sacramento Valley and specifically, Sacramento. Since receiving her degree, she has given tours of Sacramento architecture, San Francisco sites and several other areas nearby.
For an appropriate Ph.D. program she chose the University of Oregon. There she received special privileges allowing her to take classes in both the art history and the architecture programs. Leland Roth, noted architectural historian and architect, supervised her course work.
