Lyndon Baines Johnson, known as LBJ, served as the 26th President of the United States from 1963-1969. Born in 1908 in Stonewall, Texas he was oldest of five children. He graduated from Johnson City High School and went on to attend Southwest Texas State Teachers College (now known as Texas State University-San Marcos). He picked grapes and worked as a teacher educating disadvantaged Mexican students to finance his education. While in school he was editor of the newspaper, The College Star, and participated in the campus political scene. Upon graduation in 1930, he became a high school teacher at Pearsall High School. He also taught at Sam Houston High School before entering into politics.
His early political career includes campaigning for Texas State Senator Welly Hopkins when he ran for Congress, serving as congressional secretary for U.S. Representative Richard Kleberg (Texas), and heading the Texas National Youth Administration. In 1937 he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives and served six terms. He also served in the Navy as a lieutenant commander, until all members of Congress in the military were recalled to Washington in the summer of 1942, before becoming Senator in 1948. He was nominated to the position of Vice President in 1960 with John F. Kennedy and became President upon JFK's assassination in 1963.
He married his wife Claudia Alta “Lady Bird” Taylor in 1934 and had two children, Luci and Lynda. He had a heart attack at his Texas ranch on January 22, 1973 and did not survive.
