The LBJ Presidential Library will offer birthday cake and refreshments so that visitors can commemorate the birthday of President Lyndon Baines 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. and until the cupcakes are gone. August 27 would have been President Johnson’s 107th birthday. Lyndon Baines Johnson, 36th President of the United States, died in 1973, and is buried near his birthplace in Stonewall, Texas.
At the LBJ Library, enjoy the exhibit Ladies and Gentlemen…The Beatles!, a celebration of the fascination America has had with “Beatlemania” and the four lads from Liverpool during the past fifty years. Ladies and Gentlemen…The Beatles! is a traveling exhibit curated by The GRAMMY Museum® and Fab Four Exhibits that explores the impact The Beatles’ arrival had on American pop culture, including fashion, art, advertising, media and music, from early 1964 through mid-1966 – when the British band was at its peak. On display are more than 400 pieces of memorabilia, records, rare photographs, tour artifacts, video, and instruments from private collectors and The GRAMMY Museum, including the original Ludwig drum head Ringo played on The Ed Sullivan Show. It even includes an oral history booth where visitors can leave their own impressions of the timeless group.
