Elizabeth "Betty" Johnson

The sources of history we’re fortunate enough to have access to today usually owe their survival to dedicated individuals of the past with the foresight, energy and dedication to keep history alive. Elizabeth Johnson applied those virtues to the task of recording the history of Pawtucket and on her death, earlier this month, the city “lost its resident historian.”
Johnson’s efforts are most visible in the Elizabeth J. Johnson Pawtucket History Research Center, a vital resource for history and genealogy in Pawtucket.
