Lyndon Baines and Lady Bird Johnson's daughters, Lynda Bird Johnson Robb and Luci Baines Johnson, viewed their father's administration from a unique vantage point-inside the White House.

On Thursday, December 18, 2003, the two will share with the Friends of the LBJ Library what life in the White House was really like.

Along with selected film clips and photographs, the daughters will recount their days in the White House…including weddings and holiday celebrations with the oldest of the Johnsons' grandchildren.
