HARRY TRUMAN was the 33rd President of the United States and the final running mate of Franklin Roosevelt. Truman succeeded to the presidency after Roosevelt died from poor health. Truman considered Civil Rights a moral priority and in 1948 submitted the first comprehensive legislation and issued executive orders to integrate the military and the federal government. When Truman left the White House, he received only an army pension of $112 a month as former presidents did not receive pensions. He once said that he would have been practically on relief had he not been able to sell some property he inherited.
