BILLY BLACKJACK JOHNSON (1924-2003). Papers; 1923, 1929, 1946, 1969-1986, 1990-1997. 4 cu. ft.

Billy Blackjack Johnson was born in Nome, Alaska on September 13, 1924. He lived in the Jesse Lee Home in Seward for ten years while his mother, Ada Blackjack Johnson, was recovering from tuberculosis. He served in the Army from 1945 to 1948, and was stationed in Germany, where he met his future wife, Gisela Sperber. They moved to Seattle and raised a large family. Billy B. Johnson was active in Alaskan Native organizations and was involved in the formation of the 13th Regional Corporation, on whose board of directors he served from 1976 to 1985. Other organizations in which he was an officer include the Alaska Federation of Natives (AFN) Washington Chapter, the AFN International, the Alaska World Equity Corporation, Outside Region for Alaska Natives (ORFAN), and United Concerned Alaska Natives (UCAN). He was also a registered lobbyist and made many trips to Washington D.C. to lobby for the formation of a 13th regional corporation and later for a grant of land in Alaska to the 13th Regional Corporation. Mr. Johnson died in 2003.

The collection consists of files relating to the various Alaskan Native organizations in which Billy B. Johnson was involved as well as papers related to his personal life, his mother Ada Blackjack Johnson, and the Jesse Lee Home. Included in organization files are articles of incorporation and bylaws, correspondence from Billy B. Johnson in his official capacities, organization newsletters, and meeting minutes. There are also materials, such as annual reports, from the twelve Alaskan regional corporations. This collection is closely related to the 13th Regional Corporation collection, also a gift of Billy B. Johnson.

The collection was presented to the archives by Billy Blackjack Johnson in 1992. A deed of gift was signed in 1992. Additional materials were added in 1997.
