HARRY TRUMAN
Harry Truman signed this typed letter on United States Senate Committee on Appropriations letterhead to thank a New York State commissioner for forwarding a letter in 1937. Truman was still a Senator from Missouri when he signed this letter.
Typed Letter signed: "Harry Truman". Date stamp in red ink near top left corner. 1 page, 8x10½, on United States Senate Committee on Appropriations letterhead. Jan. 8, 1937. Addressed to the Honorable A. W. Brandt, Commissioner of the Department of Public Work's Division of Highways, Albany, New York. In full: "My dear Commissioner: In reply to your letter of December 29, I wish to thank you for sending my letter of December 11, to Mr. Hartnett, Commissioner of Motor Vehicles for reply. You cooperation in this matter is great-ly appreciated. Sincerely yours, Harry S. Truman HST:ECF". 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. Folds and creases (not near signature). Otherwise in fine condition.
