    President Lyndon B. Johnson Owned Monogrammed Necktie Melvon O. Carter served seven Presidents in the White House from Herbert Hoover through Richard Nixon on the Maintenance Crew. One day Carter was checking on the repair of a television in LBJ's bedroom at the White House when Johnson offered him this narrow white tie, monogrammed, "LBJ," and made by Simones of Dallas. It is accompanied by a detailed historical letter from Carter's widow who recounts the circumstances of the gift, and recounts other humorous anecdotes of her husband with Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy.
