G. W. Jackson Death Due To Brain Injury
The death of George W. Jackson, 31, 215 W. Lorain St., who died early yesterday morning at the home of Gil Osmer, 25 N. Park St., following an auto accident the night before, has been attributed by Dr. N. A. Tillman, county coroner, to a “probable subarachnoid hemorrhage.”
Jackson was treated and released from Allen Hospital about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, about an hour after he apparently lost control of his car and turned over, 150 feet east of the intersection of Routes 20 and 58. No other vehicle was involved in the accident, and there were no passengers.
He was treated by a physician at the hospital for shock, and x-rayed for a possible broken collarbone, which later was found to be a shoulder separation. He had no other marks or cuts, and complained of no ill feeling.
Released, he stopped at his home, then walked to the Osmer residence where he spent the night. He was found dead about 8:15 a.m. yesterday morning. The coroner estimated that he had been dead four to six hours.
A painter by trade, Jackson was born in Oberlin, Nov. 9, 1920, and lived here all his life [graduating from OHS in 1938]. He enlisted in the Army in 1942, serving in the African and European campaigns as a surgical specialist. He met and married his wife in England, and was discharged in 1946.

Details of the Tragedy Are Not Known
Victim of Accident had Been to Elyria on Saturday—Leaves Wife and Three Children
Albert Johnson, colored, who had been living above the offices of the Oberlin Milling Co. in South Main street, was killed by a train at Milbury, on the Lake Shore lines near Toledo, some time Saturday night. The body was found early Sunday morning.
Johnson, who had been working on the streets here, went to Elyria Saturday afternoon, saying that there was money due him there which he expected to collect. He was seen at the county seat about 8 o’clock Saturday evening. Allen & Haylor were notified of his death Sunday.
No one saw the man meet his death and the circumstances will probably never be known. Milbury is the junction of the northern and southern divisions of the Lake Shore. Johnson may have ridden through Oberlin on the passenger train arriving here Saturday night or he may have gone over the northern division.
The coroner made an investigation, but failed to learn anything in the way of details. The body was turned over to an undertaker at Genoa, where it was prepared for burial and then shipped to Oberlin, arriving here Monday morning. The body was badly mangled. Funeral services were held at the Rust M. E. church Monday afternoon at two o’clock.
Johnson, who was 20 years of age, leaves a widow and three young children. He had lived in Oberlin since his boyhood [and was a 1910 graduate of OHS.]

Cornelia M. Johnson
The following resolutions were passed by the Delta County (Colorado) Teachers’ Association:
“We, the teachers of Delta county, assembled for conference, pay tribute to the memory of one of our number, Cornelia M. Johnson, a teacher of noble purpose and unfailing sympathy, a school official faithful under the most trying conditions, a woman who counted not her abilities, her attainments, her very life, dear to herself, but all to be spent freely in the service of her neighbor.
“A true citizen, she gave her thought, not to her own solitary needs, but to the good of the community in which she lived. A true teacher, even when driven by ill-health from the school-room, she busied herself unnecessarily contriving means by which, not one only, but many boys and girls might secure the benefits of college training.
“Though extremely retiring by nature, she more than once braved the hardships and annoyances attendant upon entrance to public service, hoping thus to do still more for education for youth.
“Her absence from us is an irreparable loss, but we know that her life has left an impress upon the purpose of everyone to whom it was given to know her high ideals and her spirit of living self-forgetfulness; and through that influence we feel that she is even yet our friend and fellow-worker.”

Jeanne Claire Johnson
Jeanne Claire Johnson, 71, formerly of Oberlin, died Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012, in Pomona, Calif., following a long battle with cancer.
A resident of Ontario, Calif., Johnson was a teacher in the Detroit and Los Angeles public schools for more than 30 years until her retirement.
She taught English and mass communications to students at some of the toughest inner-city schools in the nation. She spent the bulk of her career at Jordan High School in South Central Los Angeles.
In the early 1980s, Johnson used innovation to reach out to students from communities where high crime and low educational achievement were prevalent issues. She taught students how to produce films, TV, and radio news, and encouraged them to focus their talents and find self-expression in the experience. She counseled students toward careers in the film industry and guided scores of at-risk students to college and professional career paths.
Johnson was an avid traveler who visited Israel, Egypt, Mexico, the Caribbean, and much of Europe. She was a voracious reader, an activist and member of the liberal advocacy group Move On. Johnson loved a spirited political debate, and in her later years was a frequent caller on talk radio shows. "Democracy Now!," which airs on National Public Radio, was a favorite.
Born on Dec. 28, 1940, she was the first of six children born to Harold T. [OHS ‘24] and Nancy O. Johnson. Her father, Harold "Skeets" Johnson, was an Oberlin native whose paternal grandparents fled slavery in Tennessee and North Carolina respectively and met and married in Oberlin.
She graduated from Oberlin High School in 1959 and earned a bachelor of arts degree in education from Ohio State University in 1964.
In the early 1970s, while working for the Detroit public schools, Johnson continued to pursue her own educational goals. In 1982, she earned a doctorate degree in mass communications from Wayne State University and moved to Los Angeles later the same year.
She leaves a son, Dr. Mark Strong of Silver Spring, Md.; granddaughters Zoi Walker of Los Angeles, and Ava and Laurel Strong of Silver Spring; sisters Laurie Johnson of Hayward, Calif., Mimi Johnson-Jacobs [OHS ‘60], of Oakland, Calif., and Sherry Lung [OHS ‘63] of Spencer, W.Va.; and brothers Kim Johnson [OHS ‘69] of Grosse Ile, Mich., and Harold "Chip" Johnson [OHS ‘76] of Oakland, Calif.

Mary Elizabeth Johnston
Mary Elizabeth Johnston, black educator and librarian, was born in Sandusky, Ohio on August 22, 1890 to David Henry (1852-99) and Mary (Phillips) Johnston (1857-1932; enr. Oberlin 1878-81). Her siblings were Byron B. Johnston (1887-1952), a Colgate University graduate and porter with the Pullman Company, and Ruth Johnston Freeman (1895-1966; Oberlin Kindergarten Training School, 1915), a kindergarten teacher. The family moved from Sandusky to Oberlin, Ohio in 1900 following the death of David Johnston. Mary Elizabeth graduated from Oberlin High School in 1908, beginning her undergraduate studies in English literature at Oberlin College in 1910. Unable to maintain good academic standing while supporting herself as a maid, she left Oberlin in 1912 with the intention of returning to complete her degree. On the recommendation of Julia Finney Monroe (1837-1930), Johnston was appointed as an English teacher at St. Augustine's College, an Episcopal boarding school for blacks near Raleigh, North Carolina. She held the post from 1912 to 1938. Johnston received the A.B. from Oberlin College in 1937 and the M.A. in Library Science from Kent State University in 1952 after twenty-two summers of study.
In 1938, Johnston resigned her post at St. Augustine's College and moved to Asbury Park, New Jersey, to the home of her sister, Ruth. In 1944, after several years of working as a domestic and teaching kindergarten, she found permanent employment at the Bordentown (New Jersey) Manual Training School for Negroes where she served as matron, teacher, and Dean of Girls (1952-55). In the aftermath of the 1954 ruling in Brown v. Topeka Board of Education, the Bordentown school was converted to a facility for mentally retarded boys. Unemployed as a result, Johnston accepted the position of public school librarian in Elizabeth, New Jersey in January 1956, working until July of that year before retiring and moving to Cleveland to be with her deceased niece's husband. There, she was active in support of Karamu House, the multi-ethnic community arts project, the Cleveland Public Library, and the Episcopal Diocese of Ohio. In 1964, she was a delegate to the General Convention of the Episcopal Church. During the last twenty years of her life, she was especially devoted to financing black education at Oberlin College. In a gesture of philanthropy rare among those of modest income, Johnston signed her financial resources over into a reversible trust with the college, drawing only a small monthly amount to meet expenses. Mary Johnston died on January 30, 1982. She was survived by her niece, Pauline Mary Johnston (1918-1957), her niece's family, and the family of her cousin, Theodore D. Phillips (Mus. B., Oberlin Conservatory of Music, 1924).

When she was 8 years old, her father died and the family moved to Oberlin the former home of Miss Johnston’s mother, Mary E. Phillips (Academy 1878-81). Miss Johnston completed her elementary and high school education in Oberlin and then attended the College for 2 ½ years [class of 1913]. In the second semester of her junior year (1912) she had to discontinue her studies because of financial problems.
She then taught English in Raleigh, N.C., at St. Augustine’s College, for 26 years. From there she went to Borden Town, N.J., and became dean of women and a teacher at Manual Training School. She was librarian for a brief time at Thomas Edison High School in Elizabeth, N.J. In 1955, she took a trip to England and Scotland to see the places she had discussed while teaching in her poetry classes. That same year, the state closed Manual Training School and Miss Johnston retired to Cleveland.
She then got involved in church activities. She was diocesan custodian at St. Andrews Episcopal Church and in 1964 was elected a delegate to the National General Convention of Episcopal Churches.
Miss Johnston also was involved with Seniors at Ohio Inc. In 1979 she received an award in recognition for her work in that organization. She was also a Golden Age Club of Karamu House member.
As a result of attending summer sessions over a period of 25 years, she received the A.B. from Oberlin in 1937. She then attended four summer terms at Kent State and received the M.A. in library science in 1952.
Miss Johnston was a member of the John Frederick Oberlin Society.
