LBJ Statue

LBJ Statue photo

The near life-size statue depicts a young Lyndon Baines Johnson, 36th president of the United States, as he may have appeared while a student at Texas State, then Southwest Texas State Teachers College. Johnson graduated from the university in 1930 with a bachelor of science in history with a permanent teaching certificate. Commissioned by the Associated Student Government, the statue is the work of acclaimed sculptor Lawrence Ludtke of Houston. Texas State remains the only university in Texas to have graduated a U.S. president or vice president.
