HARRY S TRUMAN
Inscribed photo with very rare Truman signature, taken at a dinner at the "Truman-Evans Dinner" at the Truman Presidential Library in 1959. Evans, Secretary of the Library foundation, was a longtime Truman poker buddy. Bess and Margaret Truman are among the guests shown.
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Mr. & Mrs. Fred Goldman, Jr./From Harry S. & Bess W. Truman/10-31-1959" by Harry Truman. B/w, 9¾x8. Harry S Truman Library photograph (stamped on verso). Written (unknown hand) on verso: "Truman-Evans Dinner/Truman Library October 31, 1959", so Truman's handwritten date on the photo was the date of the dinner, not the date on which he signed. Former First Lady Bess Truman and daughter Margaret Truman are shown in the picture, both seated at the left front table. The Truman Library had been dedicated on July 6, 1957. A year after this photograph was taken (from October 8-November 4, 1960), Truman would embark on a cross-country speaking tour on behalf of Democratic presidential candidate, John F. Kennedy. THOMAS LYNN EVANS (1896-1970) was a Kansas City businessman who served as Secretary of Harry S Truman Library, Inc. Evans also introduced Truman in the 1930's to the 822 Club, a group of Kansas City businessmen who used Room 822 of the Kansas City Club for poker games and to evade the restrictions of Prohibition. Truman, an avid poker player, was made an official member when he became President. HARRY S TRUMAN (1884-1972) served as 33rd U.S. President from 1945-1953. The former U.S. Senator from Missouri (1935-1945), who had been elected FDR's Vice President in 1944, assumed the presidency upon FDR's death on April 12, 1945. Faced with the ordeal of ending WWII (1939-1945), Truman ordered the atomic bombings on Hiroshima (August 6) and Nagasaki (August 9). He fought the Cold War with the Truman Doctrine, a policy reducing Communist pressures on Greece and Turkey through economic and military aid. During his second term, Truman sent U.S. forces to South Korea to repel invading North Korean troops. After leaving the presidency, Truman returned to Independence, Missouri, where he wrote his memoirs and was actively involved in the creation and expansion of the Truman Library. Worthy of further research. Creased at lower left and upper and lower right corners and lower right background. Fine condition.
