The press is an important aspect of any politician's career. The purpose of this is to examine the career of Lyndon Baines Johnson as it was reported in the pages of the newspapers of Texas. The study has been limited to newspapers primarily from the Central Texas area from the period 1940-1965. Much of the material for this work was taken from the "Mary Sue Haynes Collections of Lyndon B. Johnson Printed Materials." This collection consists mainly of newspaper and magazine clippings about the life of Lyndon Johnson. It was put together by Miss Mary Sue Haynes of San Marcos, Texas, and was donated to Southwest Texas State University in 1981. The clippings span over forty years of Johnson's life and political career. They afford one insight into contemporary thought during the period.
