LADY BIRD JOHNSON
Small black and white publicity photograph of Lady Bird Johnson at eth LBJ Ranch in Johnson City, Texas.
Photograph signed: "with best wishes/Lady Bird Johnson", inscribed "For Timmy" in another hand. B/w, 5x7 overall, image 4½x5½ (one surface). Date stamped 1968 August 30 on verso. Mrs. Johnson is pictured at the LBJ Ranch in Johnson City, Texas. Born Claudia Alta Taylor, "Lady Bird" (1912-2007) received her nickname after the family nursemaid, Alice Tittle, remarked that the baby of Thomas and Minnie Taylor was "as purty as a little lady bird". On November 6, 1934, she married Lyndon Baines Johnson in San Antonio, Texas. Lady Bird was a shrewd businesswoman who parlayed a small inheritance into a multimillion-dollar fortune in addition to raising the couple's two daughters, Lynda Bird and Luci Baines. Both married while their father was President (1963-1969) and Lady Bird was pursuing an active role as First Lady (she is best known for actively promoting national beautification projects). Following her husband's term, the Johnsons returned to their Texas ranch, where LBJ died in 1973 (the couple had been married for 39 years and 66 days at the time of his death). On December 22, 2006, Mrs. Johnson celebrated her 94th birthday; she died in July 2007. Among First Ladies, only Bess Truman, who died at 97 in 1982, has lived longer. Mrs. Johnson wrote the inscription over her lightly written inscription. Light paper clip stain at upper left margin. Fine condition.
