Billie Sol Estes (b. 1924, Abilene, Texas) is a scandal-ridden Texas-based financier best known for his association with US President Lyndon B. Johnson and for accusing Johnson with a variety of crimes, including the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Estes was born in Abilene and began amassing his fortune through the federal surplus grain program. After marrying in 1946 he moved to the small town of Pecos where he sold irrigation pumps powered by natural gas, using the profits to start another successful business selling anhydrous ammonia fertilizer.From: Don Haymes, "RE: cultural history--our novelists, poets, artists and actors?", written 9 January 1998, post in "Stone-Campbell Archives" section on the Abilene Christian University website (http://www.bible.acu.edu/s-c/Default.asp?Bookmark=18131; viewed 16 March 2005):
...you will probably want to look into Dale A Jorgenson, Theological and Aesthetic Roots in the Stone-Campbell Movement (Kirksville MO: Thomas Jefferson University Press, 1989)...
...As for "Christian" politicians [i.e., politicians who were members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)] we need look no farther than James Abram Garfield, Lyndon Baines Johnson, Gus Howard, and Louie Welch.
