Another President in Hudson

A reader just informed me that a fifth president visited Hudson: Harry S Truman. President Truman made a whistle stop here in Hudson on October 10, 1952, while campaigning for Adlai Stevenson. Click here to listen to the remarks he made from the rear platform of the train.

This photograph, found on the Truman Library website, was taken on October 10, 1952, but since there were a dozen stops and a dozen speeches that day, there is no reason to believe it was taken in Hudson, although it may have been.
