Wikipedia says that the S in Harry S. Truman doesn't stand for anything. However, DH was researching his family tree years ago and found that Harry S. Truman is a distant relative. The historical genealogy records show that the S stands for Shipp. Was a common practice in those days for middle names to actually be family surnames. Nice little trivia piece you put together, Mel!

that's really interesting. I'll have to do more research about him. I had fun looking up facts for the questions. Thanks for the info about his name I'll have to mention that to my friend K who is a history buff.

Nicole,

I gotta call an audible on Truman. Pretty sure that S doesn't stand for anything.

Fun quiz, tho.
