Résumé :

The collection focuses on the time Thomas H. Johnson spent with the Floating University, 1926-1927, where he served as a teacher of English. This experiment in global understanding and education involved roughly fifty faculty members, four hundred and fifty students, the Holland-American ship S.S Ryndam, and a trip of eight months, forty-seven ports, and fifty thousand miles of travel by ship and land. Johnson wrote very detailed and thoughtful letters home to his parents in Montpelier, Vermont, describing what he saw. Some of the letters described his teaching efforts, but mostly they described the lands he saw and the people he met. One of the interesting additions to the collection is a letter from Joseph Grew, post-war ambassador to Japan, reacting in 1944 to a 1926 letter Thomas had sent him, and saying how well Thomas had captured the spirit of the Japanese in the 1920s. Also included are photographs taken by Johnson during his travels.

The collection also includes two diaries, one of four months duration, when Thomas was fourteen, speaking mostly of the reading he was doing, life at school, and farm life. The other is a 1921-1922 diary, when he was teaching in the Readsboro, Vermont, schools for a few months, and ending when he was teaching in the Boston area. The diary is filled with lots of self-examination, his hopes and fears for his future, his reaction to teaching in a small rural school, including descriptions of some of his students, and ending with his arrival at Williams College and his being turned down for a fraternity.

The collection also includes letters relating to Johnson's year at Dartmouth. In one letter Thomas asks to be reinstated at Dartmouth College, where he had been asked to leave, and President Hopkins tells him why that would not be a good idea. A folder of miscellaneous letters dating from 1925 to 1933 includes a letter from Harvard's Bliss Perry and and two brief notes from George L. Kittredge.
