On April 1, 1948, my father Bernard McKenzie, his best friend Marshall Hanley, and Marshall’s wife accompanied Hanley’s family friend Sherman Minton to meet with President Harry S. Truman at the White House. Less than 18 months later, Truman tapped Minton to become the newest member of the United States Supreme Court. I wish I knew what they talked about. It was actually my dad’s second visit with President Truman. More on that later.
