Truman.” The original recipient, Pat Long, was a North Carolina teenager who, while confined to an iron lung for polio treatment during his senior year in high school (1950–51), received good wishes and autographed items from around the world. Accompanied by copies of related clippings about Long and his collection, including one mentioning this photo of Truman. A touch of silvering to dark areas, a few surface marks and small creases, and subtle waviness from mounting remnants to reverse, otherwise fine condition.
