Johnson's father ended his formal education in the eighth grade, but felt such pride in the educational accomplishments of his daughter that he nonetheless plowed through her dense, idiomatical sociology treatise from cover to cover. And Johnson laughs recalling the humility of knowing that, aside from herself, her father probably is the only other person to have read the entire paper. Humility, pride and irreverence.
