Mr. President was a radio series on ABC from 1947 to 1953. Each half-hour episode was based on an incident in a President’s life, but the dialogs were written in such a way as not to reveal the name of the President until the end of the program. An advertisement for the program noted, “Each week the suspense mounts from his first question, ‘Which one of our 32 Presidents am I?'”
