|A lot happened during the Truman Presidency which began when |
FDR died less than 6 mo. into his 3rd term (April 1946). We took the tour
and had a great docent named Jack who had lead the tours for 25 years and we were his last.
|A lot came out of his time in office-- ending WWII, NATO, Marshall Plan, |
Berlin Airlift, Korean War.
|Iconic--he liked to take solitary walks but he and Bess seemed to be a loving couple|
|The library opened in 1957 and he worked in this office there until his death in 1972|
My FB says it is only 45 days until Football Season (YAY)
|Arrowhead Stadium is just 15 minutes down the road from Truman's library in Kansas City. |
They only do tours on the weekends so day late and a dollar short but we drove/walked around a little.
|Lamar Hunt was instrumental in starting the AFL in 1960's|
