Harry S. Truman—Presidential Recordings

When Harry S. Truman became president on April 12, 1945, he inherited the RCA Continuous-film Recording machine that Roosevelt used during the 1940 Presidential election campaign. There are approximately ten hours of recordings from the Truman administration that were recorded between 1945 and 1947, with the bulk of the recordings dating from 1945. Very few concrete facts are known about these recordings and of the ten hours of recordings, only a few hours consist of intelligible conversation.
