TitleJohnson family
Scope and Content of FondsThe Johnson Family Papers consists of correspondence written by George Johnson and his three daughters, Sybil, Estelle, and Dorothy. George Johnson's letters were written during two periods: the first covers the years 1865 to 1870 during which he was a student in England. These letters were written to his father and convey general information about life as a schoolboy: - courses he was taking, summer holidays, visits with his relatives and school reports. The second period covers the years 1871 to 1880 when George was living and working in St. John's. These letters were written to his father and contain a fascinating and informative account of life in St. John's, including personal, professional, political, fishery, religious, social and athletic details. - - The letters by Sybil Johnson cover two distinct periods. The first were written during the years 1902 to 1910 when she was a student in England and in Germany. The second group of letters were written while she was working as a VAD (Voluntary Aid Detachment) during the first world war, 1916 to 1918. Almost all letters were written to her parents. There are also two diaries kept by Sybil, one while she was in Germany, 1906 to 1908, and one while at the1st Western General Military Hospital, Fozakerley, Liverpool, 1916 to 1918. The letters by Estelle Johnson were written while she was a student in England and Germany, 1904 to 1911, and those by Dorothy Johnson while she was a student in Germany, 1908 to 1910; both girls were writing to their parents. -
