Margaret Truman

Margaret Truman portrait by [[Greta Kempton]], circa 1947 Mary Margaret Truman Daniel (February 17, 1924 – January 29, 2008), also known as Margaret Truman or Margaret Daniel, was an American classical soprano, actress, journalist, radio and television personality, writer, and New York socialite. The only child of President Harry S Truman and First Lady Bess Truman, she was "a witty, hard-working Midwestern girl with singing talent who was neither particularly pretty nor terribly plain."

After graduating from George Washington University in 1946, she embarked on a career as a coloratura soprano beginning with a concert appearance with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in 1947. She appeared in concerts with orchestras throughout the United States and in recitals throughout the U.S. through 1956. While she did occasionally perform opera arias in concert, she never appeared in staged operas and mainly focused her career on performing works from the concert soprano, lieder, and art song repertoires. She made recordings with R.C.A. Victor and made television appearances on programs like ''What’s My Line?'' and ''The Bell Telephone Hour''.

In 1957 Truman abandoned her singing career to pursue a career as a journalist and radio personality when she became the co-host of the program ''Weekday'' with Mike Wallace. She also wrote articles as an independent journalist as well for a variety of publications in the 1960s and 1970s. She later became the successful author of a series of murder mysteries and a number of works on U.S. First Ladies and First Families, including biographies of her father, President Harry S. Truman and mother Bess Truman. She was married to journalist Clifton Daniel, managing editor of ''The New York Times''. The couple were prominent New York socialites who often hosted events for the New York elite. Provided by Wikipedia
