Abe D. Jones, Jr. so exemplified the title of "arts editor" at the News & Record, that he's the only person who has ever held it. Jones, the newspaper's arts editor for 14 years, died this week at the age of 87.

The newspaper industry was in Jones's blood. Jones's dad, Abe Jones, Sr., was The Greensboro Record's editor.
