Photograph signed: "For Vance/my best/L.B.J.", "and/Lady/Bird/Johnson" B/w, 8x10. Candid photo of President and Mrs. Johnson with Secret Service Agent Vance Vaughan, who is shown with them in this candid photo. LYNDON BAINES JOHNSON (1908-1973), a Democrat, represented Texas in the US House of Representatives (1937-1949) and Senate (1949-1961), serving as Senate Minority Whip (1953) and Leader (1955), and becoming Majority Leader after the Democrats took control of the Senate in 1957. A candidate for the Democratic Presidential nomination in 1960, he was elected Vice President as JFK's running mate, succeeding to the Presidency after Kennedy's assassination (November 22, 1963). Re-elected in a landslide in 1964 but increasingly unpopular as a result of the Vietnam War, he declined to run again in 1968. Domestically, Johnson is remembered for his ambitious Great Society and War on Poverty, and for his greatest achievement: passage of landmark civil rights legislation in 1964 and after. On November 17, 1934, Johnson, then a secretary to Congressman Richard M. Kleberg, married 21-year old CLAUDIA ALTA TAYLOR (1912-2007), known to the nation as "LADY BIRD." She brought great political instincts, and ownership of an Austin radio station, to the marriage. The Johnsons had two children, Lynda Bird (born 1944) and Luci Baines (born 1947). They were married for 39 years and 66 days until Lyndon Johnson's death in 1973. Lady Bird was the first First Lady to conduct her own whistle stop campaign, modernized the structure of her White House staff, and promoted D.C. and highway beautification. LBJ served as U.S. Congressman (1937-1948) and U.S. Senator from Texas (1949-1961), JFK's Vice President (1961-1963) and 36th U.S. President (1963-1969). Lady Bird, who lived to the age of 94, was the second longest living former First Lady, exceeded only by Bess Truman, who died in 1982 at age 97. Toned at edges. Signatures light and faded (legible). Stains on verso. Minor surface creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
