JOHNSON (1908-1873), who was a U.S. Senator from Texas from 1949 until his resignation upon being elected John F. Kennedy's Vice President in 1960, was Minority Whip (1951-1953), Minority Leader (1953-1955) and Majority Leader (1955-1960). He had previously been a U.S. Congressman from the state from 1937-1949. After serving as JFK's Vice President from 1961-1963, Johnson succeeded the assassinated Chief Executive as 36th U.S. President (1963-1969). CLARK W. THOMPSON (1896-1981), a Marine Corps veteran who served in both World Wars, was Director of the USMC Reserves (1943-1946). He represented Texas in the US House of Representatives from 1933 to 1935 (meeting LBJ, then merely a Congressional aide), and again from 1947 to 1967. Thompson married LIBBIE MOODY, daughter of prominent Texas entrepreneur and philanthropist William Lewis Moody, Jr., on November 16, 1918, five days after the armistice ending World War I. Clark and Libbie Moody's home on Massachusetts Avenue in Washington D.C., was nicknamed "the Texas Embassy", because it hosted so many social events. (Thompson was a key mediator among the factions of the Texas Democratic Party.) Libbie Moody donated $1 million to the University of Texas Medical School. Lightly creased and cracked at edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
