Did you know that Harry Truman's middle name is actually "S" - it's not an abbreviation - so it should get no period, ala "Harry S Truman"?

Wikipedia gets it wrong. But, then again, so does Encyclopædia Britannica.

I love the oft-attributed Harry Truman quote "It's amazing what you can accomplish when you don't care who gets the credit", but, alas, he seems never to have said it.

Apparently Harry got it wrong, too.

Ronald Reagan is acknowledged for using the "don't care who gets the credit quote", though I don't believe he ever claimed credit for authoring it himself.
