From the desk of Jan Hommel, Museum Director:
Q: Which president’s dog had his initials?
A: Lyndon Baines Johnson’s Little Beagle Johnson. Most families have some kind of tradition, and in Johnson’s family, everyone had to have the same initials…even the dog. While in the Senate, Johnson had a pup he called Little Beagle Johnson. LBJ’s daughters were named Luci Baines Johnson and Lynda Bird Johnson, and his wife whose real name was Claudia, was called Lady Bird. (Smithsonian Presidential Trivia/photo Thomas D. McAvoy)
