Harry Truman's Daughter Dies at 83
« on: January 29, 2008, 11:18:09 AM »
Margaret Truman Daniel, the only child of former President Harry Truman, died Tuesday. She was 83.

Daniel died in Chicago following a brief illness, according to a statement from the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum in Independence. She had been living in an assisted living facility for the past several weeks and was on a respirator, the library said.

Daniel, a longtime resident of New York City, was also the author of mystery novels, many of them set in Washington D.C.; books on the White House; and biographies, including books on her father and her mother, Bess W. Truman.

The Truman Library said Daniel was one of the eldest surviving children of an American president, second only to John Eisenhower, the son of former President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
