“Dewey Defeats Truman” Event at Harry S. Truman Little White House
November 4 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Harry S. Truman Foundation celebrates the 75th anniversary of what some call “the most famous political photograph of all time” on Nov. 4 with a free event from Noon to 2 p.m. at the Harry S. Truman Little White House, 111 Front St. The image in question is that of Harry S. Truman holding up the erroneous “Dewey Defeats Truman” Chicago Daily Tribune headline from the rear platform of the Ferdinand Magellan railcar. At the event, a railcar set prop can be enjoyed for photos. Attendees are requested to wear the 33rd president’s preferred Key West attire of Hawaiian shirts. Light refreshments and dessert will be served.
