The LBJ Presidential Library will offer birthday cake and refreshments so that visitors can commemorate the birthday of Lyndon Johnson. Cake will be served at the Library from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and cupcakes will be served on the West Mall of the UT campus beginning at 10 a.m. - until the cupcakes are gone. August 27th would have been President Johnson’s 106th birthday.
Enjoy the exhibit Sixty from the '60s which presents a unique look at a fascinating array of 60 Americans who can be credited with molding the movements, trends, and lifestyles of the 1960s. See original lyrics written by Bob Dylan, a Telstar satellite, a dress worn by Jacqueline Kennedy, Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin’s communications headset, a boxing glove worn and signed by Muhammad Ali, and an original Peanuts comic strip – just to name a few items in the exhibit.
Lyndon Baines Johnson, 36th President of the United States, died in 1973, and is buried near his birthplace in Stonewall, Texas.
