Loyola College official named dean of Duke divinity school


The chairman of the theology department at Loyola College of Maryland has been selected as the next dean of the Duke University Divinity School, officials at the Durham, N.C., campus announced yesterday.

If the choice is affirmed by Duke's trustees, L. Gregory Jones, 36, an ordained United Methodist minister, will succeed Dennis Campbell on July 1.

Jones is a graduate of Duke Divinity; his father, former Duke Divinity Dean Jameson Jones, died in office in 1982, several months before the younger Jones matriculated.

Jones, an associate professor at Loyola, is co-editor of the journal Modern Theology. He received bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Denver.
