JFK and Jackie hosted a private dinner for former President Harry Truman. Guests included President Truman’s daughter Bess and her husband Clifton Daniel.
Entertainment was provided by Truman favorite pianist Eugene List, who played several selections particularly liked by the former President. These included:
Polonaise in A Flat – Chopin
Waltz in C Sharp Minor – Chopin
Waltz in A Flat, Opus 42 – Chopin
Feux d’Artifice – Debussy
The Banjo – Louis Moreaus Gottschalk
Truman then took to the instrument and played a Paderewski minuet on the same piano that he used when he was President, which had been relocated from the library.
