A little more information on the man who named the “baby boom.”
Landon Jones has had a thirty-seven year career as a magazine editor. He served as managing editor of People magazine for eight years and wrote and edited for Time, Life, and Money.
His first book, Great Expectations: America and the Baby Boom Generation, analyzes the epoch of the mid-century Americans after World War II.
His second book, The Essential Lewis and Clark, reflects an interest in the primary documents of a different era, which also engaged his tenure upon the National Council of the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial. A biography of William Clark’s career, William Clark and the Shaping of the West, was published in May of 2004. Jones lives in Princeton, New Jersey.
