About

About Harry S Truman

Harry S Truman

HARRY S TRUMAN d1972. American politician who was the 33rd President of the United States from 1945 to 1953. A lifetime member of the Democratic Party, he previously served as a US Senator for Missouri from 1935 to 1945. He was chosen as incumbent President Frankin D Roosevelt's running mate for the 1944 presidential election. He was inaugurated as  Vice-President in 1945 and served for less than three months until President Roosevelt died. Now serving as President, he implemented the Marshall Plan to rebuild the economy of Western Europe and established both the Truman Doctrine and NATO to contain the expansion of communism. He proposed numerous liberal domestic reforms, but few were enacted by the Conservative Coalition that dominated the Congress. Corruption in the Truman administration became a central campaign issue in the 1952 Election. He was eligible for re-election in 1952, but with weak polls he decided not to run. Republican Dwight D Eisenhower attacked Truman's record and won easily. Truman went into a retirement marked by the founding of his presidential library and the publication of his memoirs. It was long thought that his retirement years were financially difficult for him, resulting in Congress voting a pension for former presidents, but ample evidence eventually emerged that he amassed considerable wealth after leaving office. He died in Kansas aged 88 on December 26th 1972
