Large Truman portrait inscribed to a longtime Tennessee congressman

Impressive vintage matte-finish 19 x 15 photo of Truman seated and reading at his desk, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, "Best wishes & kindest regards to Hon. Clifford Davis, from Harry S. Truman.” Framed to a slightly larger size. In fine condition.

Clifford Davis was a Democratic Congressman from Tennessee (1897-1970), who served in said capacity for nearly 25 years. He was one of five Representatives shot on March 1, 1954, when four Puerto Rican nationalists opened fire from the visitors' balcony into the chamber of the United States House of Representatives. Davis was shot in the leg, but was not seriously wounded.
