On December 3, one day after the Nixon Library released additional paper records of White House staff and tape recordings made in late 1972, the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library released the recordings and transcripts of President Johnson's telephone calls from May 1968 through January 1969, when President-Elect Nixon was sworn in.

Digitized highlights, which include Johnson offering words of condolence to Ted Kennedy in the wake of Robert F. Kennedy's assassination, discussion of the 1968 Democratic National Convention, the Vietnam War, and the Presidential transition, among other things, are available via the Johnson Library's Web site.
