DYK  JB Johnson

When you asked John B. Johnson about a name or place in Northern New York, you received a history lesson.  Born and raised in Watertown, he was the North Country's staunchest advocate.  He succeeded his father as editor and publisher of the Watertown Times in 1949 and held those positions until his death in 2001.  He brought television to Watertown in the early 1950s.  He was active in and honored by many professional groups at the local, state and national levels.  Upon his death a fund in his name was established at the Foundation.
 
John B. Johnson cared deeply for his community...You too can count on the Northern New York Community Foundation to turn caring into commitment.  We make it easy to be a philanthropist now and for generations to come. Please contact us for more information on how you can start a fund at the Foundation.
