Fine condition. Harry S. Truman (1884-1972), the nation's 33rd President (1945-1953), had previously served as U.S. Senator from Missouri, his home state, from 1935-1945. Truman had distinguished himself during his second term with his chairmanship of a committee investigating war profiteering. At the Democratic National Convention in 1944, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt selected Truman as his running mate in his successful bid for a fourth term. Truman, who succeeded to the Presidency upon FDR's death in April 1945, brought about a swift end to WWII, increased the minimum wage from 40 to 75 cents an hour and fought the Cold War with his Truman Doctrine (1947), a policy to aid Greece and Turkey in resisting Communist aggression. In his second term, Truman extended Social Security benefits to include approximately 10 million additional people and ordered U.S. forces into action when North Korean troops invaded American-supported South Korea (1950).
