Vice President Johnson's Tribute to Sam Rayburn

Nov. 16, 1961 - Here is Vice President Johnson’s statement on the passing of his friend and colleague of long standing, Speaker Sam Rayburn (pictured right at last year’s Democratic National Convention): “The capital is a lonely place without him. The good people of the world have lost a companion and an ally. He was always there when he was needed. His voice and his judgment were heard and respected. In the end, it all added up to one thing: He did what was right.”
