Eugene Purcell was known as buck. He was best friends with former President Harry Truman when they were both sitting judges in Jackson County Missouri. When Truman went to washington it was Buck Purcell who took over as the head judge of Jackson County Missouri. It is Buck who Truman credited with the saying if you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen as well as the saying the buck stops here. I know this history to be fact because I am a great great nephew of Eugene "Buck" Purcell
