Local Memories of Truman

Did you have a personal encounter with Harry or Bess? We want to hear your story!

The Truman Library is creating a video that will be featured in the museum’s new exhibit telling the story of Harry and Bess Truman’s lives once they returned to Independence following his presidency. We are seeking stories from individuals who had encounters with either Harry or Bess in Independence to help shape this narrative.

Please fill out this short form by Sunday, September 22, describing your interaction with the president or first lady. We will contact you if we are able to feature your story in this video program, in an upcoming issue of TRU Magazine, on the TRU Blog or more.
