On January 1, a year-long tribute to Lyndon Baines Johnson commences with the launching of www.LBJ100.org, a Web site that will showcase centennial events throughout Texas and in Washington, D.C. Participating Texas organizations include Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park, Lyndon B. Johnson State Park and Historic Site, Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum, Lyndon Baines Johnson Foundation, Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, and Texas State University-San Marcos.
Year round, special exhibitions, programs, lectures, and speeches will present the many aspects of Johnson’s life in and out of office. And mark your calendars for August 27 (LBJ’s birthday), when the National Park Service will open sections of the “Texas White House” that have never been seen by the general public. Also on August 27, the LBJ Library will celebrate with a big bash on the grounds and the opening of the exhibition To the Moon: The American Space Program in the 1960s. See www.LBJ100.org.
