But Mark Updegrove would take exception to the notion of LBJ as a footnote. Updegrove is director of the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library and Museum in Austin, Texas, and author of the book “Indomitable Will.” The unique structure of the book blends recollections of LBJ by those who knew him, worked with him, covered him, supported him or fought him. Only when they are taken together does a clear picture of the multi-faceted Lyndon Johnson begin to emerge.
