ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the victory of Lyndon Baines Johnson in the presidential elections on April 10, 1937. Johnson was one of the nine Texans who signed up to run for presidency when a special election was held to fill the unexpired term of U.S. Representative James Buchanan of the Tenth Congressional District. He was a former high school debate coach who had given up teaching to run the National Youth Administration in Texas. Also on this date, major league baseball came to Texas with the Houston Colt .45s' 11-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs.
