BOSTON (AP) — Arthur L. Jones, former Boston newspaper and TV reporter and deputy press secretary under President Clinton, died at Brigham and Women’s Hospital of complications from treatment for leukemia. He was 61.

Mr. Jones was part of the staff at the Boston Globe that was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Meritorious Public Service in 1975 for the paper’s coverage of school desegregation. He also was an award-winning reporter for WBZ-TV.

After leaving journalism in 1981, Mr. Jones taught journalism at Boston University before becoming a spokesman for Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis, Boston Mayor Raymond Flynn and, from 1993 to 1995, Mr. Clinton. Most recently, he was director of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology news office.
