Edith Johnson Oral history
January 18, 2012
The 1950s and 1960s were a time of tremendous growth at Brigham Young University. Much of this growth can be attributed to university president Ernest L. Wilkinson. In the mid-1980s the University Archives conducted an oral history program to document the history of the university. Edith Johnson served as secretary to President Wilkinson. Her oral history (UA OH 155) discusses her career at Brigham Young University and her experiences as President Wilkinson’s secretary. Edith Johnson’s oral history offers a unique insight into a time of dynamic activity at the university and may be accessed in the Special Collections Reading room (1130 HBLL).
