Journeys of Discovery: LBJ and Lady Bird honored at San Marcos, Texas museum

The Lynden Baines Johnson Museum of San Marcos, Texas commemorates President Johnson and his formative years as a student at Southwest Texas Teachers College (1927-1930) presently Texas State University.

Join correspondent Tom Wilmer for a visit at the LBJ Museum with board president Wayne Kraemer and board member Ann Burnette as they share insights about LBJ’s Hill Country roots. They also honor Lady Bird (LBJ’s wife) and her influence on American society—as well as some humerous recollections of life at LBJ Ranch, dubbed the Texas White House, while he served as the 36th President of the United States from Nov. 22, 1963 to January 20, 1969.

Wayne Kraemer is Senior Lecturer, Department of Communication Studies, Texas State University and director of the award-winning LBJ Debate Society and the Elton Abernathy Forensics Society at Texas State University.

Dr. Ann Burnette is a board member of the LBJ Museum and a professor, Department of Communication Studies, Texas State University.

Underwriting support for Journeys of Discovery provided by Nashville's Big Back Yard economic initiative focused on rural communities in the southwest quarter of Tennessee and the Shoals Region of Northern Alabama.
