The President's Daily Diary: June 25, 1964

On June 25, 1964, the search in Mississippi for three missing civil rights workers, Andrew Goodman, Michael Schwerner, and James Chaney, continued. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. attempted to contact Johnson. The President instructed Lee White to tell King that he had "sent eight helicopters down there [to Philadelphia, Mississippi] this morning, and 200 Marines" and had "made available every facility of the Federal Government and the Defense Department and the FBI . . ." At 1:10 p.m., the President hosted a luncheon in the State Dining Room for Prime Minister George Papandreou of Greece; he later met with the Prime Minister and others in the Cabinet Room. In the evening Johnson met with foreign policy advisors to discuss the situation in Southeast Asia.
