William T.Johnson was a Montana and Sheridan ,WY rancher . This info can be found on Mike's page Incidents newly downloaded this morning.

In any case he had nothing to do with the real Butch . He may have referred to Phillips.

But question I have is what did Johnson have mislaid at AHC or in other words UW. Did they search the right William Johnson .

            Bob, you are up early, just as I was fishing Dullenty's The Butch Cassidy Collection (June 1986) out of the closet. You covered the major points. All I will add is that the 1940 article is not... more

              One last little comment here. Looking at the article it does say that Johnson "was personally acquainted with the "Butch Cassidy" of 50 years ago." What is not clear is if he knew, or had even met... more

                Bob, good observation as well, that it's not clear from the 1940 article if William G. Johnson had ever met William T. Phillips, or was just reacting to reports of his 1930s activities. Meaning, that ... more

                Bob, thanks. The ambiguity I see is in the "of" in "personally acquainted with the 'Butch Cassidy' of 50 years ago," which probably means Johnson said he knew Cassidy in the 19th century, though... more

        It is a pile of moola for what amounts to association letters, and a not altogether definite association.
