This Week in Andover History: "Buffalo" Jones Visits Campus

The Andover community has had the opportunity to listen to a variety of notable speakers during All School Meetings over the past several years. And while many things have changed over the past one hundred years, Andover's penchant for attracting interesting guests has not.

In March 1911, Charles "Buffalo" Jones visited campus to give a lecture on "Lassoing Wild Animals in Africa." Jones was best known as a conservationist, and The Phillipian reports that the lecture he gave was "most interesting and exciting."

"The lecturer was a most clever speaker and his dry humor made the lecture the more pleasing," the article continues.

In addition to demonstrating his wit, Jones used pictures to show the audience "cowboys in the act of taking deer, mountain goat and lions" to accompany the variety of exotic stories he told.

View the PDF version of the 1911 paper to read the entire article.
