Attention Researchers: The Research Room will be closed on Wednesday, May 1st. More Info
More than 25 people came out on Saturday, Feb. 20, for the Judy Johnson program at the Archives. Not only did the speaker, Ellen Rendle, do a great job of presenting information about Johnson’s life and career, but numerous individuals who knew Mr. Johnson came forward to talk about their remembrances. Several persons noted that Johnson was always willing to help out young ballplayers in any way that he could. In addition, Joe Mitchell of Wilmington brought a number of items from his Negro Leagues collection that truly added to the day’s program. An article about the program appeared in Sunday’s News Journal.
