108357 Osa Johnson Playing Ukulele Along the Kinabatangan River, North Borneo 1920


Osa Leighty had played the ukulele on theater stages in Kansas years before she met Martin Johnson.  She was so talented at it & singing that after their elopement, she joined Martin on the Vaudeville Circuit and performed in theaters & entertainment venues around the US, Canada and Great Britain.  It was these funds that made the core of the savings account that allowed the Johnsons---after seven years of circuit work---to head off on the first of what eventually totaled nine global expeditions. This is the best portrait of Osa performing while on expedition.
