Augie Grad, Clinton Mentor, Dies
April 25, 2009, 4:29 AM
Drew University professor and Methodist minister Donald G. Jones, who was spiritual mentor for a young Hillary Rodham Clinton, has died. He was 78.
University spokesman David Muha said Jones - who taught social ethics for 36 years at the Madison school - died Thursday at Morristown Memorial Hospital.
After serving in the Navy, Jones graduated from Augustana College, South Dakota, in 1957. Four years later, he became an ordained minister through Drew's theological school.
His first pastorate was at First United Methodist Church in Park Ridge, Ill., where he met a young Hillary Rodham while leading the church's youth group.
The pair remained close friends. In her memoir, "Living History," Clinton credits Jones with being a major influence in her life.
