a White House Fellow and served as an
assistant to President Lyndon Johnson
during his last year in the White House.
She later worked with him in the
preparation of his memoirs. Goodwin

was established. During his Presidency, Mr.
Obama occasionally invited her, and a few
other select presidential historians to the

their legacies, and on occasion to request
counsel. He granted Goodwin an "exit
interview" for  Vanity Fair  as he prepared
to leave office that focused on what could
be considered his own presidential legacy.
