Page Breaks – 13 October – The Secrets of Lyndon Johnson’s Archives

Our next Page Breaks session will be on 13 October at 1 pm, and we’ll be discussing this love letter to the pleasures and mysteries of archival work (and also, LBJ). Thanks to Professor Rebecca Mitchell for recommending this piece!

“Just remember,” he said. “Turn every page. Never assume anything. Turn every goddam page.”
