The office looks exactly as it did during Johnson's presidency including the desk he used beginning is his Senate days through the White House years. Johnson kept abreast of the news with a teletype machine and three screen television console to watch all three networks simultaneously.A fifty foot long photoengraved mural depicts the national elective offices help by LBJ and the Presidents under whom he served. This work was created by Naomi Savage who selected the photos from the Library's 100,000 item collection, and produced this impressive work in magnesium.
