CAUTIONARY NOTE

Many of the transcripts of Oral Histories in the Johnson Library Oral History Collection were originally typed on typewriters and were later converted to digital files for the web. Other transcripts were prepared in now obsolete word processing software and have been migrated forward into currently used software. Pagination in the digital copies may vary substantially from pagination in the original paper copy on file at the Johnson Library or available by Interlibrary loan, and pagination may vary slightly between obsolete and current digital files as the documents are continually migrated forward into updated software.

When the transcripts which were originally typed on typewriters were converted to digital files, the LBJ Library staff discovered that the paper copies often contained minor misspellings and other typographical errors. Obvious typographical errors have been corrected in the digital files.

Get Acrobat Reader from Adobe Corporation The Oral Histories have been placed on the LBJ Web Server and are available for downloading in Adobe Acrobat format. In order to read these files you should download a free copy of Acrobat Reader for your computer.
