Harry S. Truman

About five years ago, I put a lot of work into the Wikipedia article on Harry S. Truman, my favorite US president. The article has been substantially expanded and referenced since then by others, and it now stands as a featured article on the site. (That's what the gold star in the upper-right-hand corner means.)

The current article is, I think, both a valuable resource for anyone interested in Truman's legacy, and a testimony to the enduring value and relevance of the collaborative Wikipedia project.

I made reference to Truman in my novel JIHADI: A LOVE STORY, now making an international tour of elite slush piles.
