Harry S. Truman Quote

Harry S. Truman

"The buck stops here." Harry S. Truman
According to The Truman Library and others, Truman did not come up with the phrase, though he did popularize it. The idea was in line with his sentiments, and also according to the Truman Library, "Fred M. Canfil, then United States Marshal for the Western District of Missouri and a friend of Mr. Truman, saw a similar sign while visiting the Reformatory and asked the Warden if a sign like it could be made for President Truman." The phrase did come to embody Truman's presidency and life. Add Category or Author
