Phil Nelson - Then Johnson Connection

Phil Nelson's interest in the darker character traits of Lyndon B. Johnson actually began well before John F. Kennedy's assassination. Even as a sophomore in high school, in 1960, he was intrigued by magazine articles about Johnson which had appeared in a number of news magazines in the period of Johnson's vice presidency; one such incident occurred just weeks after the Kennedy-Johnson administration took office in January, 1961. It involved a radio announcement about the crash of an airplane on Johnson's ranch on February 17, 1961, a Friday, which went unreported until the following Monday. Nelson thought it seemed a little strange when the announcement was made on the high school PA system during English class; the class was assured that the vice president had not been injured, "only" the pilots were dead. If it hadn't been for the numerous additional scandals that subsequently appeared in newspapers for nearly three years after that -- TFX, Billie Sol Estes, Bobby Baker -- the crash of an airplane would have been forgotten with time. After Nelson's graduation from college and service in the Peace Corps in Brazil , he decided that his $1,500 college loan was such a burden that he had to repay as soon as possible, he decided against graduate school and took a job in the insurance industry. Only after retirement did Nelson return to the topic of the Lyndon Johnson, authoring the 2010 book, “LBJ : The Mastermind of JFK’s Assassination”, scheduled for introduction on November 1, 2011.
