Raiders of the Lost Ark trailor. Excerpt From "Young Indiana Jones"... It was in Princeton in 1899 that Indiana Jones was born, in the Jones house, shortly after the Joneses had moved to the town where Henry Jones, Sr. had recently earned a professor position. While the senior Jones taught courses and conducted research into medieval studies, the young Jones spent his first few years getting into trouble around town. In 1908, the entire family left Princeton as Henry had the opportunity to give lectures around the world, not returning to the United States until 1910./nHenry and Indy in Princeton, 1916. By 1916, the elder and younger Jones were back in Princeton, with young Indiana attending high school with his sweetheart, Nancy Stratemeyer, daughter of writer Edward Stratemeyer. Together, the couple solved a mystery involving plans to steal an invention from Thomas Edison's labs in nearby Menlo Park and attended the senior prom together. However, Indy went to New Mexico on spring break, and then got caught up with Pancho Villa's revolution and World War I, and didn't finish high school. In 1919, Indy returned to Princeton and saw Nancy again. However, the rift between Indy and his father had grown so deep that Indy refused to attend Princeton University, and instead chose to attend the University of Chicago. Indy would once again return to Princeton in 1933, when he took a teaching job at the university. By 1935, however, he had returned to Marshall College in Connecticut. Henry Sr. continued to teach medieval history at Princeton University, at least until 1938. In 1899, Henry Jones, Sr. began a faculty position at the university and moved to the town, where his son was born. While still a member of the faculty, he took his wife and young son on several lecture and research trips around the world in the early 1900's, eventually moving to the Four Corners University for a brief time, but had moved back for his teaching duties by 1916. In 1920, Henry Jones resumed his full duties at Princeton after receiving tenure and continued his Grail research from there throughout the 1920s. Jones's son, Henry Walton Jr. began teaching at Princeton as early as 1930. In 1933, some Princeton faculty from the Department of Art and Architecture crossed paths with Indiana Jones as the search for the Voynich Manuscript intensified. Also that year, Jones received a teaching position at Princeton, in the archaeology department. His connection in the theft of the Crystal Skull of Cozan may have sullied his reputation there. By 1935, Jones had returned to teaching at Marshall College. Henry Sr. continued to teach medieval history at Princeton University, at least until 1938. (Excerpt above from "Young Indiana Jones"::)
