In the Fall of 1968, I was an entering freshman at Augusta College. Dr. Johnson was my English professor. How I enjoyed his class; I learned much about writing and about literature, but mostly I learned a valuable life lesson: ask questions and seek help, especially when you are a bewildered freshman college student. Over my career as a high school history teacher and a university professor of history, I have told the story of Dr. Johnson's influence on my life. For that I am forever grateful. Rest in peace Dr. Johnson.
