Sue,
    Nope he definately didn't. The S was just there. As for knowing that, I 
don't think this is going to occur often so I just wouldn't worry about it. The 
Truman example is the only one I can currently think of.

  Yes, since S doesn't stand for anything, please leave off the period.  Thanks 
for catching it!

    Thank you, Carrie. This is very useful info.

    (Re number 4 -- I assume that if the name itself has a
    middle initial and it does not stand for a middle
    name, e.g., Harry S Truman, we leave it the way it's
    supposed to be (smile). There's a publisher like
    that, too, I think, but I can't remember the name.)
