Dr. Elizabeth Friench Johnson (1890-1979) was a Professor and Head of the Modern Languages Department at  Winthrop College from 1922-1955. She was also very involved in the American Association of University Women serving as the President of the South Carolina Division from 1934-1936 and p

resident of the Rock Hill branch from 1952-1953. Dr. Johnson was also involved in such organizations as the International Institute of Arts and Letters, the Diocese of the Upper South Carolina Episcopal Church, and the International Federation of University Women.

The Elizabeth Friench Johnson Papers consists of essays written by Dr. Johnson and speeches given by her on various occasions.  The essays and speeches serve as good sources of reference on South Carolina educators such as James Lide Coker, founder of Coker College, and Mary E. Frayser, home economist and clubwoman.  The collection also contains newspaper and activities.  There are also program notes and reports on the Diocese of Upper South Carolina Episcopal Church, of which Dr. Johnson was the director, and on The International Federation of University Women.  The correspondence is limited to a few pieces mostly relating to her membership in the International Institute of Arts and Letters.
