Harry S Truman
[Harry Truman]
May 8, 1884 - December 26, 1972
Harry Truman was a bank clerk, postmaster, haberdasher, and 33rd president of the USA.
Assuming office in April, 1945, Truman oversaw the charter-writing meeting of the United Nations, Germany’s surrender, and the bombing of Hirishima and Nagasaki.
His two terms in office, with the establishment of the Truman Doctrine, the Marshall Plan and NATO, set the course of US foreign policy for decades to follow. His continual pursuit of social and economic reforms kept them viable for future action.
