description <p>John Walter Jones — educator, athlete,<br />agricultural scientist, farmer,<br />and politician — stands out from many<br />of his contemporaries in the life of<br />Prince Edward Island. It is not simply<br />because of his significant contributions<br />to his many fields of endeavour, or<br />because of his wide-ranging interests<br />and curiosity, but because of his<br />deeply-felt, ardent, and passionate advocacy<br />of Island agricultural life and rural<br />values. He became a hugely successful<br />and highly respected leader, and was<br />the longest-serving premier in the<br />history of the province, a record that<br />stood more than 20 years. A "man of<br />the people": there are those who still<br />say Walter Jones was the best premier<br />the province ever had.</p>
