Lyndon B. Johnson: Statement by the President on the Death of Representative John E. Fogarty of Rhode Island.
JOHN FOGARTY was a great leader and an effective Member of Congress. I am shocked and saddened by his death. He was a major architect in the fields of health and education. Lady Bird and I extend our deepest sympathy to his wife and daughter.
Note: The statement was read by Tom Johnson, Assistant Press Secretary, at his news conference at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, January 10, 1967.
