Johnny Horizon lives on…

On April 9th, I did a post on Johnny Horizon.

Look what I found in my files yesterday morning…

A 1968 or 1969 BLM map of New Mexico, which I picked up in a BLM office about 1990!

1960s map of NM showing public lands in New Mexico. The BLM lands are depicted in the orange-brown color.  Note abundance of public land around Roswell.

Reverse side of map which shares information on New Mexican wildlife.

And lastly, look at the spokesperson!   It’s Johnny Horizon!

BLM spokesperson, Johnny Horizon, on map.   Note the nice pledge and the use of the short-lived Department of the Interior seal. (used 1968-69 only)

A nice map, even if it is almost 50 year old.  Johnny “Ho” is still on the job in a few corners of America.
