Graduating with a master's degree in personnel guidance from Oregon State College in 1948, Leone Johnson served as Memorial Union Program Consultant from 1948 to 1964. She also worked as Executive Secretary for the campus YMCA-YWCA Roundtable from 1943 to 1948.
This collection consists of correspondence and pages from a dissembled scrapbook compiled by alumna and Memorial Union Program Consultant Leone Sands Johnson.
The majority of the correspondence was written by Johnson's aunts Bess Coppes MacKay and Ida Leiter; most pertains to Ida’s illness, death, and the settling of her will.
Comprised of photographs, newspaper clippings, and greeting cards, the scrapbook pages also include a Christmas poem received from friends and a graduation announcement. The images depict Johnson at home with her husband, attending social events, and examining an exhibit of locally collected artifacts at a show in the Memorial Union. Other people featured in the photographs include Norma Pritchett, Mrs. Tommy Prothro, Mrs. Austin Walter, and students Charlie Dunn and Jan Anderson.
