Harry's Hair?

Leila Cohoon's Hair Museum in Independence, Missouri, has on loan a possible piece of a president.

Six baby blond tufts of hair could belong to the late Harry Truman.

"It's a hair wreath made in the neighborhood where Truman grew up," Cohoon said.

It was a common practice for women to weave hair belonging to friends, neighbors and club or church members into hair crafts.
Recently, with the owner present, Cohoon snipped one of the sections of blond hair to be tested for DNA. [Link]
