About H. P. “Penny” Jones, 1906-1997

Penny Jones

Dr. H P. “Penny” Jones was a member of Lawrence’s medical community for more than 60 years. He was born in Lawrence on June 8, 1906, and graduated from Lawrence High School, where he lettered in three sports and was senior class president.

At KU, he played basketball for Phog Allen. Jones earned a medical degree at Rosedale (now KU Medical Center), completed graduate study at Harvard and a two-year internship at Harvard Hospital. He returned to Lawrence in 1933 and joined his father, H.T. Jones, in his practice.

Before he retired at age 80, “Penny” Jones served as Chief of the Medical Staff at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, president of the Douglas County Medical Society and the State Board of Health. “Penny” Jones died January 26, 1997. It’s fitting this tournament is named for him because “Penny” Jones used his love of golf to promote healthy lifestyles.
