HARRY TRUMAN
The year he died, the former President signed this letter to a Democratic club in California.
Typed Letter signed: "Harry S Truman", 1 page, 7¼x6¾. Independence, Missouri, 1972 March 14. On personal letterhead to Mrs. Mae Stover, Executive Secretary and Treasurer, West End Democratic Club, Upland, California. In full: "It was good of you to take the time and trouble to write me as you did and I am glad to enclose the autographed photograph [not included] for use as indicated in your letter. With best wishes for your continued success, Sincerely yours". Harry 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 involved himself actively in creation of the Truman Library. Light mailing folds touch signature. Pencil note (unknown hand) at upper right corner. Irregular edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
