Harry S. Truman in 1948
Did you know that several Presidents of the United States or presidential candidates visited Pocatello during the last century?
Harry S. Truman’s whistle-stop campaign across the United States in 1948 included Pocatello where he spoke from his train car at the railroad depot.
John F. Kennedy, while campaigning for the presidency, spoke to a capacity crowd in the auditorium at Pocatello High School on September 6, 1960. His visit is commemorated by a plaque near the stage.
On March 26th, 1968 Democratic Presidential Candidate, Senator Robert F. Kennedy gave a campaign speech in Reed Gym on the Idaho State University Campus.
