An interview of G. Allen West about Professor R. Inman Johnson and his interview of Professor Johnson in 1984. Dr. West was a student under Professor Johnson in the 1930s at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Dr. West discusses the life and character of Professor Johnson who died in 1991. He covered Johnson’s relationships with students, involvement in music and racial relations work in his retirement. Said Johnson was a "Southern gentleman, a Christian, a Baptist, a teacher, a musician, a vocalist, a humorist. He was an outstanding PR man, an outdoorsman, a hunter, a fisherman, a gardener ... this is Professor Johnson, the gentleman, the friend, the man who lived by the side of the road and became a friend to man." Much of the material for this presentation came from Professor R. Inman Johnson’s book "Of parsons and profs" and the Baptist minutes collection.
