Interviewer: Did he have a formal education? Johnson: He spent some time at a college called Guadalupe. Closed up pretty early. Couldn’t make it because I think it was private. Lack of support—higher education was almost nil back in that time. Interviewer: What about your mother? Johnson: No, except public school. She completed the public school. Interviewer: So, she graduated from high school? Johnson: Yes, as it were.
