On November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, propelling his vice president, Lyndon Johnson, into the presidency. All this month, C-SPAN3’s American History TV will air oral histories from those closest to LBJ. The interviews were conducted by former LBJ speechwriters, Harry Middleton and Bob Hardesty and are archived at the Lyndon Johnson Presidential Library. This is an interview with Lynda Johnson Robb, the elder of President Johnson’s two daughters. She reflects on her time campaigning for her father and on what it was like growing up in politics. She also discusses her White House wedding and her personal relationships with her father, mother Lady Bird, and sister Luci.
