WILLIAM MARVIN WATSON The longtime advisor to Lyndon B. Johnson signed this card in black ink Signature: “W. Marvin Watson” in black ink on a 3½x2 card. Typed: “Postmaster General of the United States”. W. Marvin Watson (b. 1924 in Oakhurst, Texas) was a prominent political advisor to President Lyndon B. Johnson for decades, first meeting him while working on his election campaign for the United States Senate in 1948. Watson's political career followed the ascent of Lyndon B. Johnson, the latter of whom became a national political figure who was eventually elected to the Vice Presidency. Watson was named head of the Democratic Party in Texas in the late 1950s, later running the Texas for John F. Kennedy 1960 presidential campaign. Once LBJ became President after Kennedy's assassination, his advisor for so many years was given the all-important position as White House Appointments Secretary; today's equivalent position is White House Chief of Staff. From 1968-1969, Watson served as the Postmaster General. Interestingly, when LBJ was a United States Senator and Vice President, Watson refused an official staff position after being offered one many times. As a young man, the signer served in the United States Marine Corps during WWII, taking part in the Pacific Theater area of operation. Fine condition.
