Near this point on November 22, 1963, Vice-President Lyndon Baines Johnson took the oath of office as 36th President of the United States. He is the first Texan to hold the office of President.
     The ceremony was held in the central compartment of "Air Force One," the military aircraft assigned to the President. The plane was parked on the concrete ramp at Gate 28, east concourse of this terminal.
     United States District Judge Sarah T. Hughes of Dallas, a friend of long standing, was summoned to administer the oath. (Judge Hughes thus became the first woman in history to give the oath of office to a President of the United States.)
     The new chief executive, with Mrs. Johnson on his right and Mrs. John F. Kennedy on the left, was sworn into office at 2:38 pm. In the stresses of the day President Johnson had executive duties thrust upon him immediately, during the flight to the capitol.
     For over 30 years he had been in public service. Like some of his ancestors (including a university president) he had taught school, as a young man.
     He had served with distinction in Congress, 1937 to 1940; and in the U.S. Senate, 1949 to 1960, with an unsurpassed record as Senate Majority Leader.
