MADISON, Wis. (11/5/09)--The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) was noted prominently in local media coverage of President Barack Obama’s Wednesday visit to Madison, Wis. Obama’s trip to Madison was the first time a president had visited the city while in office since Harry S. Truman, who went to Madison in 1950. During that visit,Truman helped lay the cornerstone of what was then CUNA’s new building in Madison on May 14, 1950. The Journal featured a black-and-white photo of Truman holding the trowels on the front of Wednesday’s paper (the photo is at the bottom of the front page). Truman kept one of two trowels used to lay the stone. CUNA kept the other, said the photo caption (Wisconsin State Journal Nov. 4). While in Madison, Obama spoke at a local middle school about education reform.
