Description: When Senate Democrats elected Felton "Skeeter" Johnston as Secretary of the Majority in 1945, Dorothye Scott became his secretary. Ten years later, when Johnston was elected Secretary of the Senate, Scott moved "downstairs" with him as administrative assistant. After Johnston's retirement, she continued in her post under Frank Valeo until her retirement. During the 1950s, the Secretary's suite contained one of the few private dining rooms in the Capitol, and Dorothye Scott arranged almost daily luncheons for the Democratic leader, Lyndon Johnson, and the senior senators who constituted the powerful "inner club," about whom she offers personal reminiscences.
