ABSTRACT
This article presents a historical account of Presidential candidates' announcements following the declaration of politician Dwight D. Eisenhower as the possible Republican candidate for the U.S. Presidential election, 1956. Former U.S. President Harry S. Truman was not pestered in 1948. As in 1936, newsmen simply took it for granted he would run. But by January of 1952, the White House press secretary declined to say anything. Truman did say on January 4 that he knew what he was going to do and that when he was ready he would announce his decision. When, later that month, he was asked about the statement of the Missouri National Committeeman that Truman had earned a rest, the President commented crisply that he was not tired.
