Harry Truman inauguration...
Item # 630260
January 20, 1949
THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR, Boston, Massachusetts, January 20, 1949 This newspaper took a different approach on the coverage of the inauguration. Typically the front page carries a large photo of the new president and his wife, or of the president taking the oath. This issue has an ink-drawing entitled "Harry S. Truman: From Farm Boy to President" with the only photo being of him quietly walking into the White House entitled "The Square Root of America". The two-line, six-column headline reads "Truman Offers Program for World Peace, Assails 'False Philosophy' of Communism". The text of his inauguration speech and other coverage is inside the issue.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day are within.
This is complete in 14 pages with several binding holes along the left spine, otherwise in very nice condition.
