LYNDON B. JOHNSON
Lyndon B. Johnson's copy of a typed letter about the housing situation on Los Angeles.
Typed Letter Signed: "LBJ" as U.S. Senator, 1p, 8x10½. No place, 1960 May 3. Retained carbon of letter to Byron Skelton, Democratic National Committeeman for Texas, Temple, Texas, signed in ink. In full: "Thank you very much for yours of the 27th. I appreciate your asking me about the housing situation in Los Angeles, but I am frank to say that I have very little idea what our requirements might be. I hope it will be all right with you if I pass your letter along to John Connally, who has already been doing some work in this field, so that John can not only give you his ideas as to our needs but also any suggestions he may have as to who might make a good housing chairman." The Democratic National Convention met in Los Angeles, July 11-15, 1960. With 761 delegate votes necessary for nomination, Johnson received 409 on the first ballot, second to John F. Kennedy, who received 806 and the presidential nomination. Kennedy then chose LYNDON B. JOHNSON as his running mate, the only time in U.S. history that a winning ticket was made up of the two top vote-getters at the convention. President Kennedy named LBJ's friend JOHN CONNALLY as Secretary of the Navy in 1961. In 1962, Connally was elected Governor of Texas. On November 22, 1963, Connally was seriously wounded while riding in Kennedy's car in Dallas when the President was assassinated. Within months of LBJ's death in 1973, Connally switched parties and became a Republican. Lightly creased, staple holes at upper left blank corner, stray ink marks at blank right margin. Horizontal crease at upper blank area. Overall, fine condition.
