Harry S. Truman

Early Career

What did Truman do after the war?

He opened a clothing store in Kansas City, Missouri, with Eddie Jacobsen, a comrade from World War I. The store did well for a couple years but went under in 1922. For more than a decade, Truman made installment payments to pay off his creditors. Because he had once owned a clothing store, he earned the nickname “The Haberdasher.”
