Museum pieces

Volunteer Jeannette Knapp found this little set of treasures tucked into a biography of President Truman: the ID badges given by the Secret Service to the nurses who attended Truman during his final illness. Also taped into the book is one of the written updates on the president’s condition that was read out for reporters. We sent everything along to the Truman Presidential Library and Museum, which is their rightful home. We’re happy to report that they gave us word that it has all arrived safely!
