During a 1992 Booknotes interview on his biography "Truman," David McCullough talked about the first and only time he saw the former President when he visited Brooklyn, New York in 1956. "I remember thinking, God, he's in color, because we only had black and white television, black and white newspapers. And I think that the fact that he had very high color--he radiated good health--made him seem not just vital but a person. He certainly didn't seem like a little man to me. To me at that moment he was six-foot-eight." close
