December 10, 1890 - mid-January, 1964
Born in Victoria, "Boss" Johnson was for a short time a professional lacrosse player before starting, with his brother John, what was to become a successful province-wide haulage and cartage business. First elected to the Legislature in 1933, he resigned in 1934 to return to running a new cartage firm. Returning to politics in 1937, he was not to hold elected office again until 1945. Upon John Hart’s retirement, Johnson assumed the office of Premier on December 29, 1947, an office he was able to retain in the 1949 election. In the July 1952 election he lost his seat and retired.
