“It is all here: the story of our time with the bark off…This library will show the facts, not just the joy and triumphs, but the sorrow and failures, too.” —from the words of Lyndon Baines Johnson at the dedication of the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum, May 22, 1971
Spoken by Lyndon Johnson at the dedication of the LBJ Presidential Library in May 1971, these words capture the 36thPresident’s intent to make all the records of his administration available to all Americans—and to let them render their own verdict as to his place in history.
In that spirit, and in the hope that the institution would also serve as a “springboard to the future,” the mission of the LBJ Presidential Library is “to preserve and protect the historical materials in the collections of the library and make them readily accessible; to increase public awareness of the American experience through relevant exhibitions and educational programs; to advance the LBJ Library’s standing as a center for intellectual activity and community leadership while meeting the challenges of a changing world.”
