Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
Missourian Harry Truman, while he did attend Spalding’s Commercial College in Kansas City, studying bookkeeping, shorthand, and typing, he left after one year. An attempt to attend the U.S. Military Academy at West Point failed due to Truman’s notoriously poor eyesight. He also took night courses towards a law degree at the Kansas City Law School in the 1920s, but did not finish when he lost his county judgeship re-election bid. He is the most recent President not the graduate from college or university.
