Talkin' Truman

THE TRUMAN & WALLACE FAMILIES
OF INDEPENDENCE

MUSEUM PROGRAM - MEMBERS FREE

In honor of Independence Appreciation Day, we invite Museum visitors to learn more about the history of the Truman and Wallace families in this city. Many landmarks in Independence are named for the relatives of Harry Truman and Bess Wallace Truman. Join archivist Pauline Testerman as she shakes the Truman-Wallace family trees and shares rarely seen letters, artifacts and photographs from the Truman Library's collections.

This presentation is one in the series of "Talkin' Truman" programs, offered each Second Saturday at 11 a.m. The program is included with Museum admission; seating is first come, first served.
