John Shattuck : Good evening and Slut wifes profile Lyndon Illinois. We at the Kennedy Library like to think of ourselves as all about, and that is about history, about what this remarkable collection of materials about the presidency of John F. Kennedy reflects: the 34, s of documents that we have here, 8, feet of film,photographs, 9, hours of recordings, 20, artifacts from the presidency and all that surrounded it.

So it's, as you can imagine, a rich lore. And not surprisingly, because of that we love presidential historians and history that they have to tell us about and all they can do to bring that history to life. And tonight we are extremely grateful that we have with us our nation's foremost-- I think I will go ahead and say that because others have--presidential historian. Michael Beschloss has been most recently given that title by Newsweekwhich calls him "America's leading presidential historian.

And in this work he interprets the secretly recorded conversations of LBJ's presidency during the crucial years in which Johnson wrestled with great issues of our time: the civil rights legislation, promotion of The Great Society, and of course, the escalation of the war in Vietnam. Michael Beschloss not only writes history and about presidents, but he talks about them in ways that have inspired millions of people, through his appearances on television-- and he's a frequent, and I'm sure you know, regular commentator on the "News Hour" with Jim Lehrer, and he appeared in the PBS documentary, The Kennedys.

And he holds degrees from Williams College and Harvard University. So he is a home-grown product of Massachusetts, even though he comes from Illinois. He has had appointments in history at the Smithsonian Institution, at St. Well, having told you about his background, I'd like to tell you a very short story about Michael Beschloss, in introducing him finally here, before asking him to come to the podium. And that is, I have on good authority that when he was eight years old and a fourth grader in Illinois, he wrote a letter to President Johnson, and the letter was written one month after the assassination of President Kennedy.

A wonderful tribute from someone who is to go on to become our nation's finest presidential historian. And here's my good authority: it's not Michael Beschloss himself. I told him earlier that this was a matter of public record and I was going to tell this story, and if he objected to my telling it, I was going to tell it anyway. The public record is that the letter that I've referred to has been retrieved by the Johnson Library and is on exhibit at the Johnson Library, and reflects the beginning of this extraordinary career of this extraordinary historian, Michael Beschloss. We will be entertaining your purchases of his book, Reaching for Gloryin our bookstore after this session, and he has graciously agreed to the books afterwards.

And after he's given his remarks he will entertain comments and questions and discussion from the audience. So please me in welcoming Michael Beschloss to our podium. Thank you. Slut wifes profile Lyndon Illinois thank you for everything that you're doing for all of us. So maybe we can all get on that.

John was much too kind in what he said. He referred to "The News Hour" with Jim Lehrer, which I think he's using the polite exact version of the title of the show. But I think even Mrs. So I could have saved John a lot of time by just coming up and saying, "I'm the one from Category five.

There was one case I came across where Johnson had asked a speechwriter to write a draft of a speech, brought it in and he liked the draft. But he said, "Well, it begins, as Aristotle said, with this great quote. Just keep the quote and change it to "As my daddy said" [audience laughter]-- which would probably work well for Johnson as President. It might not serve me terribly well as an historian if I took on methods like this.

And this is true whatever president you write about or whatever figure; you do take on various characteristics of the person that you're thinking about many hours of the day. And I'd even say it's even more the case when you're listening to tapes, because it's not just like reading letters and diaries and memos and the kind of things that an historian or a biographer usually uses. But when you hear that voice and it just goes on and on in your brain, I really was in grave danger of becoming a replica of Lyndon Johnson, which in certain ways would have been a good thing, and probably in other ways would not.

And when I began this project of listening to these tapes and transcribing them, I thought for due diligence I should go to the two people who would be most affected if I turned into an exact replica of Lyndon Johnson, which would be my assistant and my wife. And you know, to be really fair to my assistant, I let her listen to a tape recording of LBJ screaming at one of his assistants-- and there were about to choose from. And so she put the headphones on and listened, and took them off and said, "You know, I don't really know if this is the best project for you to be doing at this point of your career, at least as long as I'm working for you.

But then I went to my wife. And one of the biggest revelations of these tapes is how in what a lovely way LBJ talked to Lady Bird. And I had my wife put on the headphones and listen to one of these conversations in which Lyndon says to Lady Bird, "My darling, I long to see you. And you really do begin to get a sense of the M. For instance, I was down to the Johnson ranch this summer before last. And Lady Bird, I'm happy to report, is 89 years old; she's still in very good health, and she stays at the ranch on weekends and then goes into Austin, has a house there during the weeks.

And she Slut wifes profile Lyndon Illinois kind enough to have me down, and said, you know, "Look around," because it's still her house. And I walked around, and I walked behind the house. And behind the house is a little car which, if you didn't know what it was, you'd think it was probably maybe a convertible Studebaker of the early 's-- little small car. But there are some benefits to being a presidential historian. From my research I knew exactly what it really was. And what it really was was something called the amphicar.

And for those of you who don't know, the amphicar was the first amphibious car that you could buy. I don't know where you got it, but you could buy one as a private citizen in the early 's. And the thing about Johnson was that any new gadget, anything that was the latest in technology, he always had to have, whether it was a car, an electric toothbrush.

Once, for instance, in abouthe'd get a car every year, I think for a dollar, from the Ford Motor Company. They'd send him their latest Lincoln Continental, which he'd drive around the ranch at very high speed. And he got this new car in and the dashboard was padded, and the controls were really hard for him to work-- he wasn't used to them.

He said, "Well, who is the S. And a brave aide told him, "These were in accordance with the Transportation Act you put through Congress last year. But with the amphicar--he always wanted something that was new--and I've got these visions--I don't know whether this is literally true--of LBJ seeing one of the early James Bond films--maybe Dr. No or From Russia with Loveand seeing James in the driver's seat and a babe in the passenger's seat of an amphicar speeding across, perhaps, the Mediterranean, and Johnson saw that and said, "I've got to get me one of those.

But Slut wifes profile Lyndon Illinois any case, he got this thing. And the thing about Johnson is that's like many political leaders-- but I think more than most-- everything had about five objectives at any one moment. And this was not just a frivolous thing to sort of drive around in the amphicar. One thing he used it for was this. If you were a Johnson aide, he'd say "Come down to the ranch. And so you'd get into what you thought was probably this convertible Studebaker. And Johnson would gun the engine-- it would be going about miles an hour-- and he would drain his cup of Pearl beer and stop-- and this is classic Johnson-- to get the empty cup refilled he would simply hold the empty cup out like this, and the Secret Service Slut wifes profile Lyndon Illinois would have to hustle at high speed to refill it, probably on pain of losing their jobs.

And once it was refilled, he'd gun the engine again. And the object of the exercise was he'd be going at high speed with the aide in the passenger seat. And suddenly, if you were the aide, you'd find that you were going at a very high rate of speed straight into Lake Lyndon B. We're all going to die. And the purpose of all of this was, in Johnson's mind, when the car begins to sink, does the aide try to save his blank or does he try to save his president?

Johnson back to dry land. And the point of this was not only to take the guy's measure, but so that once he was on the White House staff, if Johnson thought he was pretending more loyalty than he thought he really was, he'd say "There's old Joe. Pretends to be loyal to me. But when the crunch came, guess who's blank he was trying to save?

And another thing about it is that when you're listening to Johnson on these tapes, he doesn't say anything in anything less than a scintillating way-- not language oftentimes that my mother would want me to use, especially on an occasion like this. But everything he says, you remember. For instance, he doesn't say, "John Smith is nervous. Or he spent about two days with a slightly dim-witted Scandinavian king and finally got the guy into the helicopter, which took off from the South Grounds. And he throws his arm around a young aide and says, "Boy, I knew they made dumb kings.

I just never knew they made kings that dumb.
