50 Years In the Arena: The LBJ School Legacy

President Lyndon B. Johnson and Mrs. Lady Bird Johnson, in 1965, came to an agreement with The University of Texas's president and Board of Regents to establish the LBJ Library and Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs. His remarks from the dedication ceremony on May 22, 1971 demonstrated his vision of a public affairs school that blended the academic and the practical — building the foundation for distinguishing the LBJ School as a maverick among its peers.
