    Harry S Truman: Archive of Truman Inaugural Programs. A fantastic lot including a detailed 42 page logistical guide for Truman's inaugural parade titled Inaugural Parade 20 January 1949 General Order No 1, which includes charts, street maps and tables of organization laid out with military proficiency for all matters dealing with routes, organization and security for the parade; the official Inaugural Program; the official program for the inaugural dinner hosted by the National Truman-Barkley Club including an unused book of matches from the dinner; the official program of the inaugural ball; and, found laid-in the parade logistics guide, an organization chart for the Mutual Defense Assistance Program, marked "Restricted". The chart was the personal copy of James Bruce, the director of the Foreign Military Assistance Program, the forerunner of NATO. All programs show some wear, otherwise they are in very good condition.
