Red Room During Truman Administration


This photograph of the Red Room by Theodor Horydczak was taken around 1948 during the Harry S. Truman administration. The Red Room is one of three state parlors on the State Floor of the Executive Mansion named after a color, with the designated red dating as far back as 1845 and the James K. Polk administration. Hanging over the mantel is a portrait of President Grover Cleveland. President Truman oversaw a large renovation of the White House that lasted the duration of his second term in office.
