SAR Compatriot Presidents of the United States

Lyndon Baines Johnson (36th President of the United States)

Lyndon Baines Johnson

Lyndon Baines Johnson served as the thirty-seventh vice president of the United States and became the thirty-sixth president of the United States, from 1963 to 1969, following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. He was born in Stonewall, Texas, on August 27, 1908. He graduated from Southwest Texas State Teachers College in 1930. With the assistance of his wife, Ladybird Johnson, he developed an extensive enterprise in farming and broadcasting. In 1937, he entered politics and was elected to the first of four terms in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Johnson was the first congressman to enter active duty when the U.S. entered World War II. He was discharged as a lieutenant commander after four years in the Navy.

In 1948, Johnson was elected to the first of two terms as a U.S. senator. In 1955, he became the youngest Congressional majority leader in history. When President Kennedy ran for office, he asked Johnson to be his vice president. After completing the remainder of Kennedy’s second term, Johnson was elected as president in his own right in a landslide victory in the 1964 presidential election.

Lyndon B. Johnson’s SAR Revolutionary War ancestor was John Johnson, who served as a soldier in the Georgia State Militia.

President Johnson died of a heart attack on his ranch in Stonewall, Texas, on January 22, 1973, at the age of sixty-four. Johnson is buried in the family cemetery now part of the Lyndon B. Johnson National Park in Stonewall, Texas.
