Around 1912, Professor Henry Jones, Sr met Taft at the White House where they discussed Taft's friendship with a medievalist and Henry's young son Indiana. Of the opinion that Henry and his son's travels together were disrupting the younger Jones's formal education, Taft offered to help find the boy a place at boarding school or a "suitable tutor".
Professor Jones later wrote to Taft to enquire after his mediavalist friend. Taft replied back to express his regret that he had been unable to locate him but had to turn his attention back to seeking re-election against Woodrow Wilson.
