Noteworthy felt tip pen used by President Lyndon B. Johnson to sign the ‘Act to amend and extend Title V of the Higher Education Act of 1965’ (H.R. 10943). The official 'bill signer' Eversharp pen measures 5.25″ long and features a navy-blue plastic barrel bearing a gold facsimile signature with presidential seal and a silver-tone cap section. Accompanied by the original presentation box with presidential seal and facsimile signature of President Johnson, as well as a typed caption: “One of the pens used by the President on June 29, 1967, on approving H. R. 10943, An Act to amend and extend Title V of the Higher Education Act of 1965.” In fine condition, with some light wear to box.

The Higher Education Act of 1965 was signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson on November 8, 1965. A part of his Great Society domestic agenda, the law was intended 'to strengthen the educational resources of our colleges and universities and to provide financial assistance for students in post-secondary and higher education.' It increased federal money given to universities, created scholarships, gave low-interest loans for students, and established a National Teachers Corps. The amendment and extension of Title V of the Act was designed to 'coordinate, broaden, and strengthen programs for the training and improvement of the qualifications of teachers and other educational personnel for all levels of the American educational system so as to provide a better foundation for meeting the critical needs of the Nation for personnel in these areas.'
