The LBJ Statue was unveiled in September 2006 and is located in the Quad in front of Flowers Hall.
The near life-size statue depicts a young Lyndon Baines Johnson, 36th president of the United States, as he may have appeared while a student at Texas State, then known as Southwest Texas State Teachers College. Johnson graduated from Texas State in 1930 with a bachelor of science in history with a permanent teaching certificate.
Commissioned by the Associated Student Government, the statue is the work of acclaimed sculptor Lawrence Ludtke of Houston. Ludtke was a fellow in the National Sculpture Society and a corresponding member of the Royal Academy of British Sculptors.
