Newstalgia Reference Room - An LBJ Press Conference - June 1, 1965

Newstalgia Reference Room featuring an LBJ Press Conference, delivered on June 1, 1965.

<strong>LBJ and The Press. In 1965 it was still a honeymoon.</strong>


We haven't run anything on LBJ in a while, so I thought I would include this Press Conference from June 1,1965, President Johnson's 43rd since taking office.

A number of areas are covered, most notably the situation in Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic, which was the scene of recent military action. Also covered was the situation in Vietnam and the 20th Anniversary of the United Nations.

A complete half hour of Q&A as broadcast by ABC Radio on June 1, 1965.
