Boxes 17-20, OP3

Scope and Content Note

The series contains correspondence, writings and collected materials related to Dr. Hurst’s relationship with former U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson. The bulk of the correspondence is between Dr. Hurst and Dr. James G. Cain, another of Johnson’s medical advisors and a close friend of Hurst, and members of the Johnson family, including L.B.J. and “Lady Bird.” Also included are several files of correspondence related to medical care provided to Johnson by Dr. Hurst from 1955 through 1973, as well as letters to and from various White House staffers.

Writings include a review of the book L. B. J.: to know him better and an article entitled “The Rock and the Flower out of Texas” describing the Lady Bird Johnson Park adjacent to Arlington National Cemetery and Fort Myer army base, and plans for the L.B.J. Grove to be created from a portion of the park. Collected materials of particular interest include Bill Moyers’ eulogy for Lady Bird, tributes to Lady Bird and L.B.J. and newspaper clippings.
