Frank Johnson was a passionate documentarian of our valley’s history. He worked tirelessly to support and recognize the stories of its people, both past and present.

In recognition of Frank’s many contributions, the Jackson Hole Historical Society, the Teton County Historic Preservation Board, and the Fund for Public Education are proud to offer the Frank Johnson History Day Memorial Fund Award, which supports middle school and high school students participating in National History Day.

National History Day is an academic event that challenges students to engage in historical research and to develop skills that will help them build richer, more empowered lives.

By supporting the Frank Johnson History Day Memorial Fund, you honor Frank’s legacy and enable the next generation of local historians to achieve their goals.

A special thanks to our community partners:
