    Excerpt from History of Michigan, Vol. 3: Illustrated

    Mr. Johnson's education was acquired in the public schools of New York, and his business career began in 1865, at the age of eighteen. He was employed in the counting room Of a large New York tobacco manu factory until 1871, and that experience was followed by his connection with a large toy manufacturing concern in New York. In 1873 he was given an interest in the latter business and continued with the house until 1877. Failing health terminated his career as a toy manufacturer in New York city. Otherwise he might probably have continued in business in the eastern metropolis throughout his active years; For recuperation he went to Denver, Colorado, where he lived several years. In 1879 he began manufacturing and handling toys and kindred lines of goods in Denver, where his enterprise continued 011 a modest scale until 1884. In that year he located in Detroit, which has since been his permanent home.

    In Detroit Mr. Johnson became manager of the Detroit Knitting and Corset Works, and directed the business management of. That concern until 1887. In the meantime, in 1886, Mr. Johnson had become associated with Homer Pennock and William Penberthy, three men who organized and incorporated the Penberthy Injector Company for the purpose of manufacturing an improved form of steam injector invented by Mr. Pen berthy. Of the new company Mr. Johnson became secretary and treas urer. The Penberthy injector was by all odds superior to anything at the time in use, but the three associates had only moderate capital, and they proceeded cautiously with investment in plant and machinery, but exploited the sale and distribution of the product most vigorously. In a few years the Penberthy Injector had an established reputation as a mechanical appliance, and the factory at Detroit grew in proportion. Since that time it has become the largest concern of its kind in the world, and supplies all markets with the Penberthy Injector and other steam appliances. Its plant at Detroit occupies several acres of ground, with a large branch situated at Windsor, Canada. For fifteen years Mr. Johnson was presi dent and general manager of the plant and company, and to his manage ment during that period has been due much of the success of the enter prise. His son, Homer S. Johnson, who succeeded him as manager, has continued in that position ever since with wonderful success.
