The History Department is sad to announce the passing of Dr. James E. Johnson, professor of history emeritus, on October 11, 2019, at the age of 92. Former students will remember his love of American history, his distinct lecture style, and his passion for justice.
A memorial service for Dr. Johnson will be held Saturday, November 9, 2019, at 2pm, in the fellowship hall of Johanna Shores Presbyterian Home in Arden Hills, MN.
We’ll no doubt have more to say about Dr. Johnson as the memorial service nears. But please feel free to share your own memories in the comments section. We’ll be sure to pass them on to his family.
