ABILENE, Kan. (AP) -- Two experts on Dwight Eisenhower and Harry Truman will speak next week in Kansas about the paths the two Midwesterners took to the White House and their legacies as president.

Tim Rives is deputy director of the Eisenhower Presidential Library in Abilene. Sam Rushay is the supervisory archivist at the Truman Presidential Library in Independence, Mo.

They'll speak Tuesday night at the Eisenhower Library about the lives and times and legacies of the two presidents.

Truman, a Democrat, was president in the final months of World War II while Eisenhower was serving as Allied commander in Europe. Truman was elected to a full term in 1948.

Eisenhower, a Republican, defeated Adlai Stevenson in 1952 to win the first of his two terms as president.
