Harry S. Truman
By Tammy Scarbrough
  

1     Harry S. Truman was born in Lamar, Missouri, on May 8, 1884. He was the oldest of three children. The letter "S" in his name did not stand for anything. It was given to him because his family could not decide which grandfather he would be named after A. Shippe Truman or Solomon Young so the letter "S" became his middle name.
 
2     When Harry was about six years old, his family moved to Independence, Missouri. It was there that he learned to play the piano quite well. Harry wore very thick glasses, so he was not able to do things that other boys were able to do. He turned to books. Harry read every book in the town library by the time he was fifteen years old. His love of history books would prove to be invaluable to him in his later years. His eyesight also prevented him from joining the West Point Military Academy.
 
3     When Harry was twenty-two years old, he became a farmer. He farmed with his father on the family's land. The eleven years he spent farming was a good time for him because it helped him gain confidence in himself, which he had not had before. He began to take part in politics with the Democratic Party organization, which would help him in later years.
