The Bear Coat and Hat/WPC


The Missouri State Fair is goin’ on here in Sedalia. While visitin last night, the Home Ec building was first on the to-see agenda. Mainly to see the quilts and crocheted items. But then This happened. A piece of Americana was on display. Nothing says Missouri like a piece of Harry Truman memorabilia.

Wonder if ‘The-Buck-Stops-Here Harry’ knew the background of this coat maker?
