      I am looking for information related to  Alice Pratt Brown of Houston, TX and her appointment as a member of the Board of Trustees of the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts from 1968-1972.  She is wife of George R. Brown  and she and her husband were friends of President and Mrs. Lyndon B. Johnson. Would like to confirm her board membership and also find any records/meeting minutes related to her.

      Thank you

          Dear Ms. Dressman,

          Archivist Jenna de Graffenried at the Johnson Library writes:

          We have correspondence between Lady Bird Johnson and Alice Pratt Brown (Mrs. George R. Brown) in the White House Social File (WHSF), Box 265. There are numerous personal notes, along with correspondence related to Alice Brown's position on the Committee for the Preservation of the White House. We have a folder in the WHSF on the Kennedy Center, but there is no mention of Alice Brown. I have not found any meeting minutes.

          According to the President's Daily Diary, on August 26, 1964, President Johnson appointed Alice Brown trustee to the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The 15 trustees appointed by President Johnson served terms varying in length; Brown's term was six years (expiring September 1, 1970).”

          For information about these records, contact Johnson.Library@nara.gov.

          The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is a part of the Smithsonian Institution (SI). For records of board meetings, contact the Institutional History Division of the SI Archives at SIHistory@si.edu.

          Best of luck in your research, and thank you for using History Hub!
