HARRY S TRUMAN
The President who made the decision to use the first atomic bomb signed this photograph that's framed
Photograph Signed: “Harry S Truman” along bottom edge of photograph in white margin. Actual image 19½x15½ on a 22x18½ (visible) sheet. Framed with a plaque noting his status as the 33rd President of the United States. Original photograph taken on April 10, 1949. On verso of frame in a plastic sleeve, a page is included that reads, in full: “Flanking President Truman as he signs the amendments to the National Security Acts are, from left to right: Georgia Senator Richard Russell, Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Louis Denfield, Army Chief of Staff General Omar Bradley, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson, Air Force Chief of Staff General Hoyt Vandenberg, Missouri Representative Dewey Short, Georgia Representative Carl Vinson, Secretary of the Army Gordon Gray, Maryland Senator Millard Tydings, Secretary of the Air Force Stuart Symington, Undersecretary of Defense Stephen Early and Secretary of the Treasury John Snyder”. Harry S Truman (1884-1972) served as 33rd U.S. President from 1945-1953. The former U.S. Senator from Missouri (1935-1945) became Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Vice President in January 1945 and assumed the presidency upon FDR's death less than three months later. 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 created the Truman Library. Signed photograph and frame in fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 31¾x37.
