In June 1965, Kansan Kathleen Johnson received word that her husband, U.S. Army Major Bruce Johnson was missing.
For four years, she waited—then, she sought answers for her three young children. This is her story of love, loss, waiting – and action.
What is a Congressional Archive?
A congressional archive houses political papers and records from a congressional member's time in office. The Robert and Elizabeth Dole Archives & Special Collections is one of the largest congressional archives outside of the presidential library system. We also house career papers, photographs and materials from other points in Senators Bob and Elizabeth Dole's lives in addition to their time in Congress.
