Harry Truman sends a typed letter of thanks for the congratulations on their wedding anniversary.
Typed Letter Signed Twice: "Harry Truman", 1p, 7¼x10½. Independence, Missouri, 1968 July 3. To Dr. and Mrs. John R. Steelman, Silver Spring, Maryland. In full: "Mrs. Truman and I were pleased to receive your congratulations on our Wedding Anniversary and we thank you both for thinking of us." Handwritten postscript: "Good luck/HST". JOHN R. STEELMAN was Special Assistant to President TRUMAN from 1945-1946 and the Chief Assistant to the President from 1946-1953. Harry and Bess Truman had celebrated their 49th wedding anniversary on June 28th. 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). Folds, horizontal fold touches signature. Light paper clip rust stains at lower right blank margin. Fine condition.
