Biography

George Perry Johnson was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado, October 29, 1885; after his graduation from the Hampton Institute, Virginia (1904), he settled in Tulsa, Oklahoma and started the first Negro paper in the territory, The Tulsa Guide (June 9, 1906); moved to Omaha, Nebraska (1913) and was the first Negro employee at the U.S. Post Office in that city; he eventually moved to Los Angeles and continued working for the post office while he worked as a writer, producer, and distributor for the Lincoln Motion Picture Company (1916-23); after the company closed, he established and ran the Pacific Coast News Bureau for the dissemination of Negro news of national importance (1923-27); he started the Negro in film collection about the time he started working for Lincoln; he died October 17, 1977.

Scope and Content

Collection consists primarily of material related to the Lincoln Motion Picture Company, Johnson's brother, Noble Johnson, Oscar Micheaux, and the Oscar Micheaux Film and Book Company. Includes newspaper clippings, photographs, publicity material, posters, correspondence, and business records. Also includes materials related to early Black film companies, Black films, and films with Black casts, and Black musicians, sports figures, and entertainers. Also contains personal papers of George P. Johnson.

Expanded Scope and Content

The George P. Johnson Negro Film Collection was assembled over a period of more than fifty years by one of the industry's pioneer producers and distributors of Black films. It contains newspaper clippings, photographs, publicity materials, posters, and, in some instances, correspondence and business records of early Black film companies. Mr. Johnson often added his own remembered information about films or performers, typing this information on slips of paper or cards.
The collection has its greatest depth in material relating to Mr. Johnson's own Lincoln Motion Picture Company, to Noble Johnson who was George P. Johnson's brother, and to Oscar Micheaux and the Oscar Micheaux Film and Book Company whose moving pictures Johnson distributed. It also has hard-to-find material on Black musicians, sports figures, entertainers, and on Black films and on Black films and film companies and films with Black casts.
The register for the collection is a card file (shelf list) which is divided into two alphabets, one for personal names and one for films and film companies. This brings together films made by the Lincoln Motion Picture Company. All of the films in which Oscar Micheaux appeared are brought together under his name. There is no indication of how much material will be found for an entry. It may be anything from a single clipping to several folders full of material.
Revised October 1995

Expanded Organization and Arrangement

The following statement appears at the beginning of each reel of microfilm of the George P. Johnson Collection:
George P. Johnson who started in the motion picture industry in 1961 as General Booking Manager for Lincoln Motion Picture Company, has assembled a collection primarily of ephemeral materials - correspondence, playbills, newspaper clippings, advertisement materials, photographs relating to Blacks in all fields of entertainment, sports and the arts. Its major strength is in the area of motion pictures. It contains records of films made by Blacks, films in which Blacks appeared, films with all Black casts, Black motion picture houses, booking agencies, music publishers, magazines and similar related subjects.
Mr. Johnson's materials revealing the history of the Lincoln Motion Picture Company are the highlight of the collection. Correspondence and other manuscripts focus on the problems, politics, psychological conflicts, deals, business failures, promotional techniques, and financial solicitations of the company and depict how this black enterprise managed to exist from 1916 to 1923. Information concerning the company itself is found throughout the collection, with concentrations of material found under the following headings. (see Index for reel and frame numbers.):
