Commemorative Sheet signed: "Harry Truman", 1 page, 6x7. Four Brazilian 40-cent stamps picturing Truman affixed, commemoratively postmarked September 1, 1947. Imprinted (in English) at upper margin: "Commemorating the visit of/President Harry S. Truman/of the United States of America". Captioned at lower margin: "Rio de Janeiro - September 1, 1947". On his state visit to Rio de Janiero, Brazil (September 1-7, 1947), Truman was accompanied by his wife, Bess, daughter, Margaret, and several members of his staff as well as Admiral William D. Leahy. Truman, who stayed at the U.S. Embassy for part of the visit, met with Brazilian President Dutra, addressed the Rio de Janeiro Conference for the Maintenance of Continental Peace and Security as well as the Brazilian Congress and viewed a Brazilian Cavalry parade during his trip. On the way home, he attended a church service aboard the U.S.S. Missouri. Earlier that year, Truman had made a state visit to Mexico (March 3-6), meeting with President Alerman, and an official visit to Ottawa, Canada (June 10-12), meeting with Governor General Axelander and Prime Minister Mackenzie King. 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 of the Truman Library. Stamped "73" at lower right corner. Postmark at the "S" and "Tru" of signature. Slightly creased. Tape stain at upper blank margin.
