Typed Letter signed: "Harry Truman" as President, 1p, 6¾x8¾. Washington, D.C., 1949 May 12. On White House letterhead to Albert West, Boston, Massachusetts. In full: "Mr. William Taylor handed me the bound volume of Mozart's Sonatas. He informed me that the binding and hand-tooling were done by the boys of the Quineboquin Camping Club under your direction. It certainly is a beautiful book. Please thank the boys for me. Sincerely yours". 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 of the Truman Library. Fold crease not at signature. Fine condition.
