Happy Holidays!

Happy holidays from the Barbara Jordan Archives and Special Collections at Texas Southern University!  This time of year we like to display seasonal times from Jordan’s papers.  This year we thought it would be fun to look at a few items from Jordan's always busy Decembers in the early days of her public service, 1967-1973.  The life of a politician never slows down, even for the holidays.  We will also feature a special holiday exhibit at the RJT Library through the month of December, so if you're in the in neighborhood, stop by and say hello!

All the best to you and yours from the staff of Special Collections and the Barbara Jordan Archives. 

Invitation to the White House from LBJ,
December 9, 1967.  This was most likely one of
Jordan's first meetings with Johnson.

youth center, Brownwood, TX,
December 11, 1969.

Christmas card list, 1973.  This was at
the end of Jordan's first year in Congress.

The job duties demanded flexibility, as 
evidenced by the last-minute additions
and corrections.
