Bernard L. Jefferson

            (1887 - ? )

   Bernard L. Jefferson was born in 1887 in Danville, Ohio. We have been able to determine only a few details of his life. He graduated from Danville High School about 1905, and from Kenyon College about 1909 with an A.B. degree. He later received a PhD degree from Princeton University. It is possible that at some stage he was involved with secondary school teaching. We know that in 1936 he was a professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana.
