Susan Cox Johnson (1876–1932) was one of the founders of the National Society for the Promotion of Occupational Therapy (later AOTA) and was a strong advocate for the use of crafts to redirect thoughts, strengthen bodies, and regain self-confidence. Johnson trained as a teacher of handcrafts and wrote Textiles Studies in 1912. She served as NSPOT’s Chair of Admissions and Positions for 4 years but left in 1923 over a dispute regarding her report for educating students. She taught occupational therapy classes at Teacher’s College, Columbia University, and published on occupation therapy in the journal Modern Hospital.
