Description

Book spine label: "Lady Bird Visits Monterey and Dedicates Big Sur Highway, California's First Official Scenic Highway - 1966." Comprised entirely of newspaper clippings documenting and commenting on Lady Bird Johnson's visit to the Monterey Peninsula on September 21, 1966. Johnson was in Monterey as part of a four-day trip devoted to conservation and highway beautification. Fred Farr served as Johnson's official escort during her time in Monterey, beginning at Colton Hall for the First Lady's welcoming ceremony, and later at Bixby Creek Bridge for the dedication of Highway 1. Several articles note Farr's role in establishing California's scenic highway program and arranging Lady Bird Johnson's visit. Clippings date from September 8, 1966, to September 29, 1966.
