I AM…OSA JOHNSON {WORLD FAMOUS EXPLORER, AUTHOR, & AVIATOR} AND I LIVED MY DREAM!

ImAgIne sitting down for an interview with Osa Johnson when she was alive.  Well, that’s exactly what the Suede Sofa did.  We asked SaFaRi MuSeUm CuRaToR JacKie BorGeSoN if she could find quotes from Osa on a couple of questions regarding this InCrEdibLe WoMaN from Chanute, Kansas, LiViNg HeR DrEaM.  The answers were amazing, as if we actually did interview Osa (they are actual quotes of Osa’s).  We hope you are InSpIrEd to “LiVe ThE AdVeNtUrE” of the life you were DeStiNeD to live!

The first is sometimes attributed to Martin, but Osa uses it in her book Four Years in Paradise.  The second comes from the speech Osa gave late in her life. 
The following video is a mini tour of the Safari Museum located in Chanute, KS.  Curator Jackie Borgeson takes us on a quick tour providing fascinating information about the life of Osa and Martin Johnson.  Enjoy!!

    How good to have this on your website. I am also a fan of Osa. What a leader in women’s rights and doing what she wanted to do when it was not proper for women. More women need to know about her. She should be as popular as Amelia Earhart!

    I’m in the middle of reading the new biography of Osa and Martin Johnson. Having a very hard time putting it down and finding it hard to believe that I had never heard of these two until receiving this book. Having traveled Africa recently, I received this as a gift and it is very real and honest.

  3. You are right Martha, Osa is very inspiring! Amazing that she is from Chanute. Kelly, I’ve seen your book (maybe at the museum?) and will definitely have to check it out further!! Toph enjoy your read! Martin and Osa’s life was fascinating!!
