Lyndon B. Johnson - Presidential Recordings

Between 1963 and 1969 Lyndon B. Johnson secretly recorded roughly 800 hours of conversations. The collection primarily consists of telephone recordings that Johnson made during his time in office. In 1968, Johnson began recording meeting conversations.

The Johnson Presidential Library hosts a searchable online database that can be used to search the over 6,000 conversations currently available. The database may difficult for first-time users, so we have created a help page with instructions on searching the collection.
