Forty years ago, a couple of boxes of photo negatives sold for $15 at a garage sale. The pictures turned out to be a historical goldmine. Deciding that John Johnson was the photographer is a change from previous scholarship. At one time, the photographer was though to be Earl McWilliams, thus the collection on Doug Keister's website is called the McWilliams collection. Keister thinks McWilliams was a collaborator with Johnson in the photographs, but Johnson was the actual photographer. To see more photographs, go to http://www.keisterphoto.com/gallery/fs_mcw.htm.
