HARRY TRUMAN~LETTER~1953~LAST DAY AS PRESIDENT


TRUMAN, Harry S. Autograph Letter Signed ("Harry Truman") in black fountain pen ink on The White House, Washington letterhead, January 19, 1953. 5" x 8", 1 page (recto only). Fine.

To Mr. Robert V. Fleming*

Written on Truman's last day as president.

In this letter, Truman takes his wife's name off his checking account with the Riggs National Bank, but gives her power of attorney to sign checks.

In full: "Dear Mr. Fleming, I want to change our joint account to my name and give Mrs. Truman power of attorney to sign checks. It is a legal procedure that has become necessary now. Sincerely yours, Harry Truman". The president adds, "Please give Miss Conway** the necessary papers & cards."



*Robert V. Fleming, president and chairman of the Riggs National Bank Board of Trustees.

**Rose A. Conway (ca. 1900-1980), was Harry Truman's personal and confidential secretary from 1945 until his death in 1972. She then worked at the Truman Library until 1975. Truman once said of her, "No man ever had a more loyal secretary."

The Twentieth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, effective with the 1937 inauguration, established that "the terms of the President and Vice President shall end at noon on the 20th day of January."

Rarely does a handwritten letter of Truman appear on the market.

Truman (1884-1972), born May 8, 1884, Lamar, Missouri; died December 26, 1972, Kansas City, Missouri; 33rd President of the United States 1945-1953; noted for the sign on his desk stating "The buck stops here."
