LBJ speech recalls struggle to bring low-income housing to Austin

In 1968, at the end of his political career, with barely one month left in his term as president, LBJ came home to Austin. A small affordable housing project was being dedicated and the sponsors asked the president to make a few remarks. In his speech the president looked back and looked forward to the challenge of housing the poor.
