ELIZABETH "BESS" TRUMAN
11x14 print of president Truman signed "Bess W Truman" by his wife and First Lady
Annotated printed art signed "To Selaya/Best [illegible] wishes/Bess W Truman". Color, 11x14. Print of Sam J. Patrick's portrait of Truman, with biographical information on Truman on verso. ©1969 Bowmar Publishing Corp., ©1972, 1976 Ottenheimer Publisher Inc. Truman (1885-1982, born Elizabeth Virginia Wallace in Independence, Missouri) married the future 33rd U.S. President, Harry S. Truman, in 1919; they got engaged before he left for France and World War I in 1918, cutting short their courtship. Truman generally abstained from comment on public policies and only participated in Washington social life when necessary. Unlike her predecessor, Eleanor Roosevelt, she gave no press conferences and usually responded to any questions with a terse "No comment". She tried to curb her husband's salty, blunt language. When one society matron complained that the President had used the word "manure" in public, Bess replied that it had taken her 20 years to get him to say "manure". She lived longer than any other First Lady, dying at the age of 97. Not only did she live longer than any other First Lady (as of this biography), she also lived longer than any United States president. Lightly toned, creased and scuffed. Signature faint but mostly legible. Otherwise in fine condition.
