Who was Texas Attorney General John Ben Shepperd? What did he stand for? What did he accomplish? What is his legacy?
The Americanism of John Ben Shepperd answers those questions and more. John Ben Shepperd (JBS) was a powerhouse of ideas and action, all focused on the betterment of Texas by cultivating leadership in its youth.

In The Americanism of John Ben Shepperd, Dr. Robert Brescia has thoughtfully compiled excerpts of speeches, writings, and other public comments of former Texas Attorney General, political adviser and friend of President Lyndon B. Johnson, and Odessan John Ben Shepperd. John Ben’s writings and orations included in this volume not only provide a glimpse into his life and times, but remind us that sustaining America s freedoms, opportunities, and greatness is made possible only by the willingness of its people to aspire and to become ethical public servants and leaders. --Daniel Heimmermann, Ph.D. Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs
