Biographical Sketch

Helen DeVitt Jones organized the Helen Jones Foundation, Inc. in 1984 as a continuance of the charitable work in which she and her sister Christine DeVitt had long engaged. Helen DeVitt Jones was born in 1899 to parents David and Florence DeVitt, owners of the Mallet Ranch on the Llano Estacado of West Texas. Following a childhood split between time in Fort Worth and the ranch, Helen attended Texas Christian University and the University of California where she received a degree in English, graduating with highest honors. After the death of her husband in 1955, she returned to the South Plains to assist her sister Christine in managing the ranch. Oil revenues from the Mallet Ranch enabled the sisters to make generous charitable donations in support of local and regional organizations promoting the arts, culture, and education. Helen DeVitt Jones died in 1997. Louis Arnold, long-time friend and guardian, held several offices with the Helen Jones Foundation, Inc. and helped to continue Helen DeVitt Jones’ legacy of giving.


Scope and Content

Additional materials such as pamphlets explaining opportunities provided by the Foundation, legal and governance records, and financial records are also included.

Several boxes contain material personal to Helen Jones, primarily financial statements and related legal materials, although a scrapbook and other non-fiduciary material is present.

A final box contains account statements for The CH Foundation, founded by Helen’s sister, Christine DeVitt.
