HARRY S TRUMAN
Senator Truman sends a letter in regards of a man that is "too old" to hold a post with the Government and Senator Truman feels this is unfair
Typed Letter Signed: "Harry Truman" as U.S. Senator from Missouri, 1p, 8x10½. Washington, D.C., 1941 December 19. On letterhead of United States Senate, Committee on Interstate Commerce to Mr. W. D. Flack, Mariemont, Ohio. In full: "As my secretary told you in his letter of December Second, there is no possible chance for employment with the government at your age. This, I think, is unjust, and I believe in many cases illadvised, but it is a regulation over which I have no control. I appreciate your desire to be of help and feel sure that you can do your part locally. Sincerely and fraternally". 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. Lightly creased with folds, at "y" in Harry. Fine condition.
