Description
Members of the Muhlenberg Marching Band get ready on the train for the inaugural parade of President Harry S. Truman, January 20, 1949. The Muhlenberg College Marching Band marched in the inaugural parade for President Harry S. Truman on January 20, 1949 in Washington, D.C. The band, which included 50 muhlenberg musicians and 4 Cedar Crest majorettes, represented the state of Pennsylvania and it was the first time the Muhlenberg band was chosen for a performance of this capacity. The previous fall, Truman had visited the Lehigh Valley on a campaign tour and the Muhlenberg band performed at the train station upon his arrival. According to Ray R. Brennan, Lehigh County Democratic Chairman, Truman made favorable remarks about the band at that time.
