Harry S. Truman, 1884-1972.  33rd President of the United States, 1945-1953.  Very fine 11” x 13½” black-and-white portrait photograph inscribed and signed, Kindest regards to Mrs. Elaine Burke  /  Harry S. Truman.

This formal presidential portrait was Truman’s favorite of himself.  It was taken by Frank Gatteri, a photographer for the United States Army Signal Corps, circa 1945, after Truman acceded to the presidency following the death of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. 

Truman almost certainly signed this photograph as president.  It is undated, while Truman dated virtually everything that he signed after he left the White House.  Furthermore, the signature is typical of those in of Truman during the White House years.

Truman has inscribed and signed this large-format photograph in black ink.  For the sake of accuracy, we note that the photo has a bit of rippling, which is almost imperceptible, along the top and right edges.  It is in very fine condition and would be magnificent framed.

Unframed.
