As a teenager and young adult, Clifton Truman Daniel drifted from his grandfather’s legacy. Later, he rediscovered his grandfather…as a human being and as an uncommonly principled leader and public servant. To paraphrase journalist Eric Sevareid: “It’s character, just character…(he) reminds people what a man in that office ought to be like.”
Clifton Truman Daniel is the oldest grandson of President Harry S. Truman. Mr. Daniel is honorary chairman of the board of the Truman Institute and board secretary of the Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation. He is the author of Growing Up With My Grandfather: Memories of Harry S. Truman and regularly writes and lectures on the Truman presidency.
