The former President President thanks a Philadelphian for a clipping on a statement by columnist Drew Pearson.
Typed Letter Signed: "Harry Truman", 1p, 7¼x8. Independence, 1961 April 26. To Mr. J. Rosen, J. Rosen Associates, Philadelphia. In full: "Thank you for your note of the 21st with the enclosed clipping regarding Drew Pearson's statement. It was most interesting and I appreciated very much your sending it to me. Sincerely yours," Political columnist DREW PEARSON (1897-1969) was often critical of Truman during his White House years. HARRY TRUMAN (1884-1972), a WWI veteran, one-time haberdasher, former U.S. Senator from Missouri (1935-1945), was 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. Glue stained at lower blank margin and upper left. Glue stains on verso lightly show through to blank upper margin. Lightly creased.
