Since 2004, Claudia has served as the Supervisory Archivist at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum. She joined the Library’s staff as an archivist over 44 years ago, shortly after completing a B.A. in Government at the University of Texas at Austin.
During her career at the Johnson Library, Claudia has worked with President Johnson’s pre-presidential papers, the recordings of his telephone conversations, his White House papers dealing with domestic policy, and Lady Bird Johnson’s papers. Claudia has a particular interest in collections dealing with the political tensions between Congress and the White House. In 2013, she received the National Archives and Records Administration’s Lifetime Achievement Award for her many years of service at the Johnson Library.
Claudia often speaks at public programs promoting archival research and the archives profession; she is an active member of the Society of American Archivists. She enjoys chamber music, traveling with Dan, her husband, and spending time with her three young grandchildren and their parents.
