The Lyndon Baines Johnson Foundation has given its LBJ Liberty and Justice for All Award to former President George H.W. Bush for his civility, civil rights work and bipartisanship.

The nation's 41st president was presented with the honor at his office in Houston by the late Lyndon Johnson's daughters, Lynda Johnson Robb and Luci Baines Johnson, The Dallas News reports.

"The period of his presidency stands as a well-remembered time when those qualities characterized leadership in our country at the highest levels — a condition from which all Americans benefited," LBJ Foundation chairman Larry Temple said.

"I know President Johnson would be elated with the presentation of this award, the LBJ Foundation’s highest honor, to President Bush.”

Bush said he and his wife Barbara "both had such great respect for LBJ and of course we loved Lady Bird [his wife]. They were both great Americans, and great Texans, who loved their country and their state."
