 Photo of Minnie Taylor Thomas in 1922 via the Martin and Osa Johnson Safari Museum.

Minnie Taylor Thomas was Osa Johnson's aunt, whom Osa greatly admired. According to Conrad Froehlich of the Martin and Osa Johnson Safari Museum in Kansas, "Osa's aunt Minnie Taylor Thomas was a cigar-smoking circus performer who worked for years as a bareback rider."
