265 Quiz Answer

Harry S. Truman was the 33rd President of the United States, from 1945 to 1953.
(Also for ABC Wednesday: "N" is for "noteworthy.")

Here’s a really quick quiz for you this week:

He had a record as a soldier that was not outstanding, but he served well and received an honorable discharge.
As an entrepreneur, a businessman, his record was worse than mediocre; he opened a shop that sold items for men – hats, ties, handkerchiefs, etc. – but the place failed.
He did not have a college education.

He had a rather unique relationship with Alamogordo, New Mexico.
Who was he?

P.S. By the way, this noteworthy gentleman had no middle name.  His parents had given him the letter "S," but only that, for a middle name.

(The answer will be posted Saturday.)

Did Doctor FTSE get the correct answer? It makes sense to me, although I am not sure of the answer at all!

OOOH! OHH! Mr. Kotter! Is it Harry S Truman? (See, I remembered to leave the period off the middle initial!) Ha ha. Amy
