LYNDON BAINES JOHNSON

THE 36th PRESIDENT
OF THE UNITED STATES

LBJ spent his college years in San Marcos while he attended what is now Texas State University-San Marcos (1927-1930). Here, he honed his political skills and developed a strong commitment to education, eliminating poverty and civil rights. The LBJ Museum of San Marcos focuses on his formative years, how his early experiences as a college student and schoolteacher impacted our community and the nation, and his visits back to Texas State University. President Johnson announced the War on Poverty and the creation of the Gary Job Corps Center in San Marcos during one public address in 1964 and signed the Higher Education Act on the Texas State University-San Marcos campus in 1965 during his tenure as President. We welcome your attendance to our museum to learn more about this
great American.
