LYNDON B. JOHNSON
Typed Letter signed as Senate Minority leader (1956), giving a noncommittal reply to a letter about UNESCO funding
Typed Letter signed: "Lyndon B. Johnson" as US Senator, 1 page, 6x10. Washington, D.C., 1956 April 18. On his letterhead as US Senate Democratic Leader to Mrs. D. Duain Fanning, Huntington, Indiana. In full: "Thank you very much for your letter of April 14 giving me the benefit of your views relative to the funding of UNESCO. This bill, as you know, has not yet been acted upon by the House. The Senate, however, plans to begin hearings around the 7th of May. I appreciate having your views on this subject. Sincerely." One horizontal fold crease through center. Lightly toned. Otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by matching envelope (6½x3) to same addressee, bearing Johnson's stamped frank. Toned and creased. 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. Two items.
