HARRY S TRUMAN
Six months after leaving the White House, he signs a typed letter
Typed Letter signed: "Harry Truman", 1 page, 7x7. Kansas City, Missouri, 1953 January 24. On letterhead of his office at the Federal Reserve Bank Building, Kansas City, to Monique Tessier, Washington, D.C. In full: "I certainly appreciated most highly your note of the 22nd. You were kind and thoughtful to write me as you did. Mrs. Truman also appreciated your nice note. Sincerely yours". Light mailing folds, not at signature. Accompanied by typed envelope (7¼x4) to same addressee. Lightly soiled. Truman, 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 was actively involved in the creation of the Truman Library. Although Truman is now remembered fondly, his popularity was at an extremely low level when he left the White House in 1953, so he no doubt appreciated a "kind and thoughtful" letter. Two items.
