Professor Jones continues to work with graduate students interested in the history of Latinos in the United States and in Idaho.

Errol D. Jones earned the Ph.D. in 1971 from Texas Christian University specializing in Latin American history. From 1971 to 1976 Jones taught at the Universidad de las Amerícas in Mexico.
