Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Dorothy Marie Johnson was born in McGregor, Iowa, on December 19, 1905. Her family moved to Great Falls, Montana, in 1909, and to Whitefish, Montana, in 1913. Miss Johnson graduated from Whitefish High School in 1922, enrolled that fall at Montana State University in Bozeman and transferred to The University of Montana in Missoula the following year. There, she studied creative writing under H.G. Merriam, one of the university's legendary teachers. She was married briefly with the last name of Peterkin.

After graduation in 1928, she found work as a stenographer in an Okanogan, Washington, department store. After another stenographer position in Menasha, Wisconsin, she spent fifteen years as a magazine editor in New York City at Gregg Publishing Company and Farrell Publishing Corporation. >From 1950 to 1953, she was news editor of the Whitefish Pilot. She returned to Missoula in 1953. She was the secretary-manager of the Montana Press Association and taught part-time in the university's School of Journalism. Miss Johnson retired from both her teaching and her Press Association jobs in 1967 because of poor health.

She wrote sixteen books, beginning with Beulah Bunny Tells All in 1941 and ending with All the Buffalo Returning in 1979. Her subjects include Native Americans ( Sitting Bull: Warrior for a Lost Nation; Buffalo Woman; All the Buffalo Returning); stories for children ( Farewell to Troy; Greece--Wonderland of the Past and Present); and history ( Famous Lawmen of the Old West; Some Went West; Flame on the Frontier; Western Bad Men; Montana; The Bloody Bozeman). She also co-authored The Bedside Book of Bastards with Robert Turner, a professor of history at The University of Montana. She is perhaps best known for her three short stories made into movies: "The Hanging Tree," "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance," and "A Man Called Horse." Her short stories were widely anthologized in textbooks and other collections. Miss Johnson was also a frequent writer of letters to the editor of the Missoulian; some of her letters influenced managerial decisions in Missoula city government.

Miss Johnson received numerous awards, including the Western Heritage Wrangler Award, 1978; The Golden Saddleman Award, 1976; an honorary doctorate from The University of Montana, 1973; a University of Montana Distinguished Service Award, 1961; and Montana's Outstanding Professional Woman of the Year, 1952. She died November 11, 1984.

Detailed Description of the CollectionReturn to Top

Series I:   Biographical and Personal , 1965-1981Return to Top

3 folders

This series includes a folder of biographical sketches, Who's Who profiles with Miss Johnson's corrections, and introductions read for speeches. More notable are the two folders labeled "Dreams" and "Keepsakes." The first contains undated manuscript notes and drawings relating to Miss Johnson's dreams that may be notes for an early story. The second is a gathering of personal mementos apparently assembled by Miss Johnson. It includes pieces of correspondence with notable individuals, including The Writer's War Board (Rex Stout), members of her family (who often address her by her middle name, Marie), early newspaper clippings about her, H.G. Merriam, J. Hugo Aronson (then governor of Montana), some fan mail, H.K. Newburn (then president of the University of Montan), and the dean of the Journalism School. There are materials from her membership in Beta Sigma Phi, the sorority to which she belonged at The University of Montana. There are also assorted programs from weddings and funerals, holiday cards and drawings, and a small address book that appears to have belonged to her mother.

Series II:  Correspondence , 1940-1984Return to Top

4.5 linear feet

This series contains a mix of incoming and some outgoing personal and business correspondence, with a small amount of financial correspondence. There is correspondence with fellow writers and literary scholars. There is also fan mail, letters from genealogy researchers and photographers, some of Miss Johnson's letters to the editor of the Missoulian, and a selection of her Christmas letters. Correspondence filed under a work's name is a mix of research and contact with the book stories editor or publisher, or her agent. There are also letters about the film productions of some of her books. Some of this type of correspondence is also mixed in with the manuscripts in Series VI and VII and with the research files in Series VIII. Notable correspondents include Andre Deutsch, A.B. Guthrie, and Bronsan G. Stevenson. Materials are arranged alphabetically by the name of correspondent or by subject assigned by Miss Johnson.

Series VI:  Articles, Short Stories, and Plays , 1923-1982 Return to Top

6.5 linear feet

This series consists of materials associated with Miss Johnson's numerous published and unpublished articles, short stories, and plays. Materials include not only notes, manuscripts, publisher's typescript, and galley proofs, but clippings of the finished stories and correspondence with editors and agents about the publication of the pieces. There are also two folders of story ideas, one folder of poetry written before 1925, and a folder of small notebooks with ideas related to stories. Many of those notes are written in shorthand only.

The series is arranged alphabetically by the titles assigned by Miss Johnson.

Series VII:  Book Manuscripts , 1968-1971 Return to Top

11.5 linear feet

This series consists of the research notes, associated correspondence, drafts, publisher's typescripts, carbons, and galley proofs of Miss Johnson's books. Most are heavily annotated and give a good idea of the writing and editorial process.

The series is arranged alphabetically by book title; within each book, materials are largely in the order of production--from notes to galley proofs--but largely retain Miss Johnson's arrangement.

One unpublished book manuscript is permanently closed at Miss Johnson's request.

Series VIII:  Research , undatedReturn to Top

5.0 linear feet

This series includes notes, articles, publications, and clippings that Miss Johnson generated and gathered in the course of her research for numerous projects. Particularly strong subjects include Native Americans, Montana history, and carbon monoxide poisoning.

The materials are largely retained in Miss Johnson's alphabetical subject arrangement. Materials gathered in her research for The Bloody Bozeman are under that title, but other book research projects may be considerably more scattered.

This series consists of travel materials--tickets, brochures, maps, Miss Johnson's notes and commentary, and receipts--that she collected in the course of planning for and taking numerous foreign trips in these years.

25.0 linear feet
These books are located in the Mansfield Library's Special Collections Department.

This series includes mostly courtesy copies of Miss Johnson's works or of works including her stories and essays, but also contains books personally owned by her, used in her research. Many are annotated in her hand. There are a number of translations of her books into Italian, Spanish, German, and Indonesian. A card file that appears to be a record of the books in her personal library, many of which were not retained in this series.

The books containing her works include limited first editions and a great number of primary school textbook anthologies. Books owned by her include obvious research interests (classics, west) as well as books inscribed to her by others, given as family gifts, or apparently handed down through her family.

The series is divided into three subseries: About and By Miss Johnson; Johnson's writings in Collections or Anthologies; and Annotated Reference Books. Within each category, materials are arranged alphabetically by title or author.
