Historian Jim Gibbons will present the life of the Missouri farmer Harry S. Truman who became our 33rd President of the United States.

Determination and persistence were the keys to Truman?s personality. This included winning his wife?s hand in marriage dropping of the Atomic Bomb firing of General Douglas McArthur and the "whistle-stop give 'em hell speech campaign." When all the press the pollsters and even his mother-in-law felt that he had no chance Truman overcame all odds to achieve the presidency in his own right. Gibbons will show that even though the politicians the press and the pollsters unanimously acclaimed that Thomas E. Dewy was the sure presidential winner the voters were wild about Harry! REGISTER
