HARRY S TRUMAN
Photograph inscribed and signed on the mount, framed in the Gallery of History style to 17x28. Truman signed the day the papers announced the narrow victory of the next Democratic President, JFK (11/9/1960).
Photograph Mount inscribed and signed: "Best of luck to Don Gibson/From Harry Truman/11-9-60". B/w, 8x10 mounted to 11x14. Photographer's name at lower right: "Harris & Ewing, Washington, D.C." Harry S Truman (1884-1972) signed this photo on November 9, 1960, the same day newspapers across the country proclaimed the narrow victory of fellow Democrat John F. Kennedy in the 1960 presidential election. Twelve years earlier, Truman had won an equally close and unexpected triumph over Thomas E. Dewey, creating "one of the major upsets in American political history". The famous Missouri native had succeeded to the presidency after serving as Vice President for only 82 days. Faced with the ordeal of ending World War II (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. Fine condition. Framed in Gallery of History style: 17x27¾.
