Timothy A. Johnson collection
This collection mostly consists of photographs and miscellaneous related items regarding African American businesses, organizations, and groups, predominantly in Wichita, Kansas. There are also photographs from elsewhere in Kansas, as well as Oklahoma and Nebraska. Includes mounted prints, real photo postcards, cartes de visite, cabinet cards, and other items. The collection also notably includes materials related to Lauretta Buckner's involvement with the Daughters of Isis (a women's auxiliary to the freemasons), Wichita Chapter; materials related to the Mentholatum Company of Wichita; and a handful of photographs from the Southwest Kansas Sunflower conference of the 1930s-1940s. The collection appears to have been gathered by Timothy A. Johnson of Falun, Saline County, Kansas.
