Events on tap to mark LBJ’s 105th birthday

Perhaps it is only fitting that the day after school begins is the birthday of a teacher-turned-politician who eventually became the 36th President of the United States.

Aug. 27 commemorates what would have been President Lyndon Johnson’s 105th birthday, and to celebrate his birthday, the State of Texas has a number of activities planned.

At the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin, there will be free admission that day, along with a Texas summer favorite — cool air conditioning.

The library will serve cake and refreshments from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and at the West Mall on the campus of the University of Texas, at 10 a.m., cupcakes will be served.
