In 1916, Truman had become one of Morgan's partners in Morgan & Company, an Oklahoma oil well firm that later went bankrupt. They remained lifelong friends. Harry S. Truman, 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. Two items.
