Julia Jones Pugliese (May 9, 1909 – March 6, 1993) was an American fencer. She took up fencing as a New York University student in 1927 and was the first women's US National Intercollegiate champion in 1929 and had a 60-year career as a fencing coach. Born Julia Jones, she married Anthony Pugliese. She was the first woman to coach a collegiate fencing team, leading N.Y.U. to national championships in 1933 and 1938, and coached the Hunter team to a national title in 1970. Mrs. Jones-Pugliese was the Hunter coach from 1956 until her death in 1993.

Famous quotes containing the words julia and/or jones:

    The old, subjective, stagnant, indolent and wretched life for woman has gone. She has as many resources as men, as many activities beckon her on. As large possibilities swell and inspire her heart.
    —Anna Julia Cooper (1859–1964)

    The only road to the highest stations in this country is that of the law.
