Good morning! Here’s a lovable D.C. cab driver and his scruffy mutt to tell you all about why Dwight Eisenhower should be re-elected in 1956. (Really, it’s pretty great.)

Sure, you love Lyndon Johnson. But do you love him enough to slap a sticker on a donkey for him? DO YOU?

October 20, 1967.  Across the US people are responding, especially on college campuses, to the escalation of protest and conflict over Vietnam. This clipping from the Austin American-Statesman newspaper was sent to LBJ by old friend—now Congressman—Jake Pickle.
It describes the efforts of eight “long-haired, casually attired” University of Texas students on motorcycles as they attempt to recruit students from Southwest Texas State College (LBJ’s alma mater. now Texas State University). The “UT peaceniks” are turned away by the SWT dean, to the delight of Cong. Pickle, and, presumably, the President. 
Note, Jake Pickle to the President, 10/20/67, Ex HU 4, WHCF, Box 60, LBJ Library.

i kind of like how this scanned image only includes a piece of Thomas Dewey’s face. It looks like the sleeve of a 1940s single.
