Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library and Museum

Austin, TX

Lyndon B. Johnson, U.S. president from 1963-1969, brought the country back on an even keel after his predecessor John F. Kennedy’s assassination and steered it through the murky waters of the Vietnam War. During his presidency, Johnson signed an unprecedented 200-plus landmark laws. Among his most significant acts as president, Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, outlawing discrimination based on race or color, sex, religion or national origin. He also signed the Economic Opportunity Act. The LBJ Library houses more than 45 million pages, an extensive audiovisual collection, with over 650,000 photos and 5,000 hours of recordings and over 2,000 oral history interviews.
