Lessons Of Truman's Undelivered Farewell Address

Opinion | Joanne Butler
Summer 1947 and November 1, 1950: President Harry S. Truman survived numerous attempted assassination attempts. In the summer of 1947, numerous letter bombs were sent to the White House. Secret Service members intercepted and dismantled the bombs. In November 1950, Truman was staying in the Blair House while the White House underwent renovations. Two Puerto Rican pro-independence activists, Griselio Torresla and Oscar Collazo started a shootout outside of the Blair House. Allegedly Truman watched through his window before a passerby yelled for him to take cover. (photo: wikimedia commons)
