This photo montage includes three of the dozens of original Johnson photographs donated by Dan Slane. Dan’s father Bill was a long-term supporter of the museum close personal friend of Martin and Osa’s African Safari pilot Vern Cartstens. Carstens had given Bill some of his original photos and after Bill passed away, Dan collected anything “Johnsonian” from his father’s estate and donated it to the museum. Besides the photographs, Dan gifted us with artifacts and a vast number of museum memorabilia including clippings, photos and promotional pieces.
These photographs will be accessed into the Johnson Photographic Collection, which is housed in the museum’s Henshall Archives.
