Truman and Noyes: story of a president's alter ego

Front Cover
Jonathan Stuart Press, Jul 1, 1997 - Biography & Autobiography - 283 pages
This is an EXTRAORDINARY story of the relationship between a Missouri born Baptist, with no formal education beyond high school & a Russian born Jew with an eighth grade education. The author, Dr. Krasnoff, has been a friend of the Noyes family since 1927. He was first aware of Noyes' role in the government in 1943 when, while visiting Noyes' mother he was shown letters on White House stationery. In 1987 Dr. Krasnoff began his research of Noyes' anonymous role as adviser, confidant & associate of Harry S. Truman for almost thirty years. In an interview shortly after President Truman's death, Noyes remarked that "every president needs an alter ego." When asked if he was that to Truman, he replied, "I was Truman's everything. I was Truman's total & complete confidant." Contained in this amazing story are three hundred & four pages with many photographs & one hundred reproductions of documents, notes & letters (fifty by Truman & thirty by Noyes). "I realized that here was a part of the Truman story that had to be told...Dr. Krasnoff tells the very moving tale with great feeling & care. I am pleased to see the story finally told."--BENEDICT K. ZOBRIST, former Director, Harry S. Truman library. "The author has undertaken one of the most difficult tasks in the world - to write about a rare & remarkable person, David M. Noyes."--EDWIN A. LOCKE, JR., former special assistant to President Truman & former Regional Ambassador to the Middle East.
