July 20, 1945: General Dwight D. Eisenhower, General George Patton,
and President Truman at the ceremony at the U.S. Group Control Council Headquarters in Berlin, Germany, where the American
Flag was first officially raised. President Truman was in Germany to attend the Potsdam Conference. Photo from

Incredibly sharp photograph of President Harry S. Truman at his White
House desk in 1947. Undoubtedly, this was an official White House photo. Truman became president when F.D. Roosevelt
died on April 12, 1945. Many doubted his leadership abilities at the time, but decisions made by Truman ensured the
end of World War II; he approved the dropping of atomic bombs on Japan on August 6 and 9, 1945.
A press photo from the 1956 Republican Presidential Campaign, the "Ike
& Dick Ticket". Pictured are Mamie, Ike, Pat and Dick.
Famed publicity photograph of President John F. Kennedy at his desk
with son John, Jr. This was one of many shots released to the media to help portray the informal life of the presidential
family. Taken in the 1960's.
Great color photograph of a somber President Lyndon Baines Johnson standing
behind his White House desk. Note the pink Post-it Note on the document on his desk.
Excellent 1963 photograph of Lyndon Baines Johnson, the 36th President
from 1963 through 1969. A Texas statesman, his vision of "A Great Society" for the American people and
their fellow men elsewhere became his agenda for Congress. When he left office, peace talks from Viet Nam were under
way; he did not live to see them succeed, but died suddently of a heart attack at his Texas ranch on January 22, 1973.
Photo taken April 9, 1962, as President John F. Kennedy greets members
of the Washington D.C. Senators baseball team at the first game of the season. In keeping with tradition, the President
threw out the first ball at the Senators Spring opener at the D.C. Stadium in the team's second season as the American
League's second Senators franchise. The park was later renamed RFK Stadium after the late President's slain
brother, Robert F. Kennedy.
Wonderful photograph of President Harry Truman taken in the replica
of the oval office in the Truman Presidential Library in Independence, Kansas. Note the fake window behind him on the
left. Probably dates from about 1962 to 1968, a period when he frequented the Library.
