Interview with Lady Bird Johnson conducted by Michael L. Gillette

In December 1984 and February 1985, Michael L. Gillette, then director of the LBJ Library's Oral History Program, conducted his only two video interviews with Lady Bird Johnson in the dining room at her home on the LBJ Ranch. Though the interviews were recorded to accompany an LBJ Library exhibition, A White House Diary, most of this footage has not been seen by the public. In the excerpt featured, Mrs. Johnson discusses several themes of the new exhibition, including the origin of the beautification movement and the Great Society's challenges and achievements in conservation.
