Photograph signed: "John L. Lewis" and "Harry Truman". B/w, 8¾x6¾ photo mounted to a 11½x9¾ sheet of cardstock (two surfaces). HARRY S. TRUMAN (1884-1972) had been Vice President for only 82 days when he became the 33rd President of the U.S. (1945-1953) upon Franklin D. Roosevelt's death on April 12, 1945. Faced with the ordeal of ending World War II, Truman oversaw the surrender of Germany (May 7) and ordered the atomic bombings on Hiroshima (August 6) and Nagasaki (August 9). He fought the Cold War with the Truman Doctrine, a policy granting Greece and Turkey $400 million in economic and military aid to help them fight Communist aggression. By the end of 1945, Truman had introduced economic measures that would become part of his Fair Deal program. As a result, the minimum wage was increased from 40 to 75 cents an hour through an amendment to the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 and Social Security benefits were extended to include approximately ten million more people. During his second term, Truman ordered U.S. forces into action when North Korean troops invaded American-supported South Korea. JOHN L. LEWIS (1880-1969), a former coal miner, was President of the United Mine Workers Union from 1920 to 1960. In 1935, after a disagreement with the American Federation of Labor, he withdrew his union from the AFL and formed the Committee for Industrial Organizations. Lewis reorganized it three years later as the Congress of Industrial Organizations and served as CIO President from 1935 to 1940. Lightly toned, cracked, creased and bowed. Lewis' signature has poor adhesion but is visible. Truman's signature has poor adhesion and is lightly smeared but legible. Light scratches and impressions (not visible head-on) and scuff-marks on image. Paper loss and adhesive residue on matte. Otherwise, fine condition.
