Harry S. Truman sends a typed letter saying that he will look into the Nelson Krasher proposition.
Typed Letter Signed: "Harry" as President, 1p, 7x8¾. The White House, Washington, 1948 April 3. To his friend, Edward D. McKim, Omaha, Nebraska. Begins: "Dear Eddie". In full: "I appreciated very much your telegram of March thirty-first and I'll look into the Nelson Krasher proposition." Handwritten postscript: "Hope all is well with you!" EDWARD D. McKIM served under Capt. Harry S Truman, Battery D, 129th Field Artillery Regiment, 1917-1919, and, after World War I, with Truman in the U.S. Army Reserve Corps. After Truman became President, McKim was Chief Administrative Assistant to the President (1945) and Administrative Assistant to the Federal Loan Administrator (1945). He later served as member of the Board of Directors of the Panama Canal Company (1950-1953). 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 and expansion of the Truman Library.
