Project Description

Staff from the Safari Museum first went to Borneo in 2004 to bring digitized copies of the surviving 2800 photographs Martin and Osa Johnson took in 1920 & 1935 home to the people in the images.  The Johnsons path was retraced by Sabah and Safari Staffers and modern images were matched with those from the collections.  People like Masri Angau appeared in the expedition photos as children and graciously helped staff find the names and locales of the collection photos.  Martin Johnson died before labeling the photos from the 1935 trip, so were still working on the ground in Sabah and in the archives in Kansas to put a name to every face and place we can!masri then and now pics with borgeson
