Harry Truman’s legacy of decisive and principled leadership was frequently in the national spotlight during 2008 as the nation noted the 60th
anniversaries of some of President Truman’s most historic acts, including the recognition of Israel, his executive order to desegregate the U.S.
Armed Forces, the Berlin Airlift, and the 1948 Whistle Stop campaign. We are pleased to share highlights of the past year, all made possible by

Senator John McCain Visits Truman Library

On October 1, 2008, Senator John McCain delivered an
economic policy speech from the Harry S. Truman Library and
Museum, engraving his name on the roster of presidential
hopefuls who have made a pilgrimage to the hometown and
presidential library of America’s 33rd president, Harry S. Truman.
Senator John McCain on Harry Truman
“He was a man of principle, of wisdom and a deep and abiding
love for our country. His accomplishments in war and peace
are among the most significant of any president in the
twentieth century. He succeeded beyond everyone's
expectations—perhaps, even his own—because every day
Harry Truman woke up determined to put his country before
party and self-interest. We would all be better public servants,
and the country would be better served, if we tried a little more
often to keep the example of this good American before us.”
Senator McCain’s address from the Truman Library was
covered by every major news outlet in the nation.
Official Guestbook
Each year, the Truman Library and Truman Library Institute host luminaries and
dignitaries from around the world. During the past year, official visitors included

forum on the presidency
On Sunday, October 5, 2008, the Truman Library Institute presented the second annual Howard & Virginia Bennett Forum on the
Presidency. The event attracted an audience eager to engage and participate in the topic, The Media and the Presidency: Playing
Politics. Scott Simon, host of NPR’s Weekend Edition, opened the discussion with a classic reference: “When you talk about the
presidency and the press, any of us in the press have to have a sense of humility. There was probably no more vivid illustration of the
fact that the press is often wrong than that famous headline in the Chicago Tribune, ‘Dewey Defeats Truman.’”
True to form, The Howard & Virginia Bennett Forum on the Presidency delivered a spirited dialog among the moderator and panelists,
who this year included JFK’s speechwriter, Ted Sorensen; the director of the Nixon Library, Timothy Naftali; and political scientist
Costas Panagopoulos. A pre-event reception offered the opportunity for West Wing Council and Buck Stops Here Society members to
meet and visit with these special guests.
“The Howard & Virginia Bennett Forum on the Presidency is the flagship public event for the Truman Library Institute and a must for
the area’s thoughtful and engaged citizen,” said Alex Burden, Institute executive vice president. “We are extremely grateful for the
vision and support of Mary and Michael Johnston, who generously endowed the series and continue to play an active role in planning
and hosting the annual event.”

February 15 – April 13, 2008
Marking the 60th anniversary of President Truman’s world-altering decision to recognize the
fledgling state of Israel in 1948, Truman & Israel comprised two side-by-side exhibits, Inside the
Decision and Portrait 2000. Inside the Decision brought 1948 dramatically to life with firsthand
accounts of the political battle leading up to the recognition of Israel. Among the many original
artifacts and documents included in the exhibit were President Truman’s Cabinet chair; President
Truman’s statement offering “de facto” recognition to Israel, May 14, 1948; and correspondence
between President Truman and several prominent people who offered him advice on the issues of
displaced persons and the recognition of Israel. The companion exhibit, Portrait 2000, was organized
by the Midwest Center for Holocaust Education with funding from the Jewish Community Foundation
of Greater Kansas City and featured 50 black-and-white portraits of Holocaust refugees and
survivors who settled in Greater Kansas City. The Museum welcomed 19,285 visitors, including
2,810 students, during the exhibition’s run.

May 16 – September 14, 2008
Neither a traditional biography of Lincoln nor a conventional exhibit on the Civil War, Lincoln: The
Constitution and the Civil War shed light on one of our nation’s darkest periods and a largely
unknown drama. Although the Civil War was a military conflict waged between North and South, at
base it was a Constitutional crisis—the severest test of the American experiment in popular self-
government since the founding of the Republic. Lincoln understood this, and his constant focus on
the Constitution enabled him to chart a course that, ultimately, saved both Constitution and country.
Organized by the National Constitution Center in partnership with The Lincoln Museum in Fort
Wayne, Indiana, and in cooperation with the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission, the
exhibition focused on the three constitutional crises which Lincoln faced as president: secession,
slavery, and civil liberties during the Civil War. During its run, Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil
War attracted 56,419 visitors; 5,416 of these were students.

On July 26, 1948, President Harry S. Truman signed Executive Order 9981, which provided for
equality of treatment and opportunity for all Americans serving in the armed forces. At great
risk to his own re-election in 1948, President Truman was willing to raise the civil rights
issue and to formulate and promote a reform agenda. His actions demonstrated his
determination to correct the abuses of the past and to advance the rights of all Americans.
Now an online exhibit tells this little known chapter in our nation’s civil rights story. The
documents, photographs, and firsthand accounts in To Secure These Rights give insight
into the political and cultural climate and the unlikely president who took a stand. To view

The teaching of history matters.

Truman biographer David McCullough has said, “History is a guide to navigation in perilous times.” And yet, a 2001 National Assessment of
Educational Progress in U.S. history and civics showed that American students are failing to grasp the significance of people, places and
events of history. With your help, the Truman Library Institute will continue to support the effective teaching of history—the future of our
democracy depends on it. The programs offered by the Truman Library are designed to meet national academic standards and serve as the
standard for our nation’s presidential libraries.

The White House Decision Center During FY08, 5,394 students stepped into a re-creation of
the West Wing and into the shoes of President Truman, his cabinet members and advisers, and
members of the media. Praised in The New York Times as a model for all presidential libraries,
the White House Decision Center (WHDC) is the Truman Library’s flagship education program.
Designed as a hands-on history lab, the WHDC strengthens student skills in information
gathering and analysis, problem solving, decision making, leadership, and communication, while
deepening knowledge of history and government. Grade 8 – Adult
Museum Tours More than 11,239 students visited the museum in FY08. Two-thirds of the
students who received docent-led tours visited the museum on scholarship, thanks to the
generous funding of the Edward G. and Kathryn E. Mader Foundation, the M.R. and Evelyn
Hudson Foundation, and the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. K-12
Truman Footlocker In FY08, more than 1,200 students experienced the Truman Footlocker, a
popular, hands-on classroom resource filled with replicas of Truman-related artifacts, documents
and photographs. K-12
National History Day More than 400 students in grades 6-12 competed at the Truman Library
in the regional competition of the National History Day Contest on March 10, 2008. Of those, 13
went on to compete as finalists at the University of Maryland in June.
NEW – Presidential Election Trivia Contest With one of the most dramatic elections in
modern history as a backdrop, 54 students on nine teams from across Missouri went toe to toe
on topics ranging from Defeated Presidents to Vice Presidential Candidates to Slogans, Ads &
Speeches. First Place was awarded to Rock Bridge High School in Columbia, Mo. Second and
third-place prizes went to Holden and Tarkio high schools, respectively.

With support from the Truman Library Institute, the Internship Program of the

During the past half-century, scholars have turned again and again to the Truman era, illuminating for today’s students, leaders, and
thinkers the critical issues of Truman’s presidency. The enormously rich—and world-famous—archival resources of the Truman Library
are instrumental in the continuation of future scholarship. The Grants & Awards Program opens the doors to these resources and is
invaluable to emerging scholars.

About the Award

The Scholar’s Award is a one-time award offered in even-numbered years to a scholar who is

Harry S. Truman Book Award

Wilson D. Miscamble
Professor of History, University of Notre Dame
From Roosevelt to Truman: Potsdam, Hiroshima, and the Cold War
(Cambridge University Press, 2007)

About the Award

The Harry S. Truman Book Award recognizes the best book published within a two-year period
that deals primarily with Harry S. Truman or the period of his presidency. Past recipients include
Dean Acheson, former secretary of state (1970); Walter Isaacson, president and CEO of the
Aspen Institute (1988); Stephen Schlesinger, director of the World Policy Institute (2004); and
John Lewis Gaddis, noted historian of the Cold War (2006). The prize is $1,000.
About the Book
More than 20 books were contenders for the Truman Book Award. From a field of titans, the Research
& Grants Committee awarded the 2008 prize to Wilson D. Miscamble’s From Roosevelt to Truman. A
two-time recipient of the Truman Book Award, Miscamble’s critically acclaimed work directly
challenges historical views that Truman’s actions as president represented a sharp break with the
diplomatic policies of his predecessor, Franklin D. Roosevelt; along the way, Miscamble provides a
vivid portrait of Truman’s foreign policy decision making relative to the origins of the Cold War.

Harry Truman left America an enduring legacy.

A legacy of values: responsibility, leadership, decisiveness.

And a commitment to the democratic ideals

that make our nation great.

Harry Truman’s story needs to be shared—now more than ever.

With your support, the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum
