Arizona, The Youngest State, 1913, pg 618

Harry Johnson, prominent lawyer of Phoenix, has become known as one of Arizona's representative citizens. Mr. Johnson was born in Atlanta, Georgia and was reared on a cotton plantation in the northern part of the state. His preliminary education was acquired in Tennessee and after one year spent in teaching school in Alabama he entered the Cumberland University where he began the study of law.  His force of character soon drew him into important relations with community life and he became one of the most popular men in the university taking an active part in athletics and winning a position on the football and baseball teams. Nor did he neglect his professional studies but became president of the Law Society and a member of Beta chapter, Kappa Sigma.  After his graduation he took the state exams in Tennessee and was admitted to the supreme court of that state, opening an office in Chattanooga, where he remained until 1908 when he came to Phoenix.  Here he has engaged in the general practice of his profession since that time, his ability securing for him a large patronage.
