Fifth generation Galvestonian JAN JOHNSON has been seriously studying the Island's rich history as a part-time Tour Guide since 1982. A direct descendant of two 1900 Storm survivors, her interest in her Island heritage was born when her mother, Dorris Stechmann Johnson, became secretary to John Garner's Historic American Buildings Survey in 1966-67.

Jan earned a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education at the University of Houston in 1986 with a 3.94 GPA. In 1995, she attained her Masters of Art in Literature when she researched and wrote the history of Galveston's Little Theatre, 1922-1942. She took the full time "free fall with free lancing" in May 2000.

Her stories have been published in various local publications such as WHEREHouston, the Galveston County Daily News, Twisted Parrot, Centex's Our Place magazine, and on Guidry News Service. In September 2004, Jan completed more scholarly research on "The Reymershoffers: Early Texas Czech Entrepreneurs" for the Czechoslovak Genealogical Society International's newsletter, Nase rodin.
