President Truman signed this large 9x12¾ b/w bust photo with his "Kindest regards" to James M. Carter, one of his District Court appointees
Inscribed photograph signed: "Kindest Regards to Hon. James M. Carter/Harry Truman". B/w, 9x12¾ overall, 8x9 ¾ image, one surface, printed on cardstock. JAMES MARSHALL CARTER (1904-1979) was United States Attorney for the Southern District of California before Truman appointed him to the U. S. District Court for the Southern District of California in 1949. He served there until 1967, when he was appointed to the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. HARRY S. TRUMAN (1884-1972), a WWI veteran, one-time haberdasher, former U.S. Senator from Missouri (1935-1945), had been elected Vice President for the fourth term of Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1944, and he assumed the presidency in April 1945, following the sudden death of FDR. During his first term, Truman ordered the use of atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki (August 1945), forcing a Japanese surrender and the end of WWII (1939-1945), announced his Fair Deal domestic program (September 1945) and issued the Truman Doctrine (March 1947), which guaranteed aid to any nation resisting Communist aggression. Following his stunning 1948 defeat of Republican challenger Thomas E. Dewey, Truman oversaw the foundation of NATO (April 1949) and sent troops to South Korea to repel the North Korean invasion (June 1950). After leaving the White House, Truman returned to Missouri, where he wrote his memoirs and was actively involved in the creation of the Truman Library. Lightly rippled and bowed. Light folds and creases, some of which touch signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
