Description:

One of the ten Presidential Libraries administered by the National Archives and Records Administration, the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum features documents and materials from the Truman era. Highlights of the site include original documents relating to the Korean War, the Berlin Airlift, the formation of NATO, the decision to drop the bomb, the Marshall Plan, and the Truman Doctrine. A detailed chronology of Truman's life and times from 1940 until his death is also posted along with photographs, educational programs and resources (including Project Whistlestop, an extensive Website offering online activities for K-12, last featured in the March 24, 2000 Scout Report), and online museum exhibits. Even a quick visit to this Website powerfully reminds us of the pivotal role Truman's presidency played in the history of the 20th century.
