Title

Lady Bird Johnson Speaks at Lincoln Elementary School (sound recording)

Description

A 20-minute audio recording of the dedication of Lincoln Elementary School in Columbus, Indiana. The highlight of the ceremony was the speech by First Lady Lady Bird Johnson (1912-2007), who visited Columbus as part of her Crossroads: USA Tour. Her tour featured several stops in the Midwest from September 20-23, 1967 to see the effect of policies from her husband President Lyndon B. Johnson’s (1908-1973) “New Society” initiatives, which influenced schools and communities like Columbus. The building’s architect was Gunnar Birkerts (1925-2017), a Latvian-American architect noted for his late-modernist designs. This recording also features speeches by then Indiana Governor Roger D. Branigin (1902-1975), and Columbus Mayor Eret H. Kline (1907-1987).
