My sister, Rose Sigillito, and I, Mary Alice Sigillito Redmon, are natives of Washington, D.C., who are now living in Missouri. When we were at home in Washington, we attended various events, such as FDR's funeral procession, inaugural parades, etc. One of the inaugural parades we saw was President Truman's in January 1949. We remember how robust and tan he was. He seemed to be enjoying himself as he was smiling broadly. No doubt he was thinking of the recent election during which he fooled all the pollsters and handily defeated Gov. Dewey!
