Dr. F. Burton Jones, a well established young physician at Vallejo, former Medical Superintendent of the St. Helena Sanitarium and Hospital and widely known throughout this section of the state, is a Canadian by birth but a Californian by choice and is pleased to regard this as his established home. Dr. Jones was born in the province of Quebec on June 29, 1891, and there had his initial schooling. He early turned his attention seriously to the study of medicine and his studies along this line were completed in the medical department of the George Washington University at Washington, D. C, from which institution he was graduated (M. D.) in 1914.

Upon receiving his diploma, Dr. Jones became engaged in the practice of his profession at Washington and there remained until in 1915, in which year he came to California as assistant physician in the St. Helena Sanitarium and Hospital. In 1917 he was made medical superintendent of that institution and was thus engaged until in 1919, when he determined to enter general practice and with that end in view opened an office at Vallejo and has since been engaged in practice in that city, with offices on the fifth floor of the Fisch-Higgins building, and is doing very well.

On June 16, 1921, at Vallejo, Dr. F. Burton Jones was united in marriage to Miss Rose V. Teicheira, who was born in that city, daughter of Manuel Teicheira, a member of one of the old families here, and they are the parents of one child, a daughter, Lucile. Dr. and Mrs. Jones have a pleasant home at Vallejo and take an interested and helpful part in the general social and cultural activities of the city and of the community at large, giving thoughtful attention to all measures and movements having to do with the advancement of the common welfare in this favored section of California.
