Shortly before her father's death in 1972, Daniel, under her maiden name, published Harry S Truman, a critically acclaimed full length biography of her father. The book extensively used sources from Presidential papers in the Truman Library. Daniel followed this book in 1986 with a volume of her mother's life, Bess W. Truman, which covered her mother's, as well as her father's life from an insider, micro perspective as opposed to a macro perspective taken in Harry S Truman.


Daniel also wrote books on White House first ladies and pets, the history of the White House and its inhabitants, as well as a critically acclaimed series of fictional murder mysteries set in various well-known locations in and around Washington, D.C. An article in The Weekly Standard makes a strong though circumstantial case that the murder mysteries are the work of a ghost writer, Donald Bain.

Margaret Truman - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (507 words)
Mary Margaret Truman Daniel (born February 17, 1924 in Independence, Missouri) is an American writer and the author of biographies, books on the White House and several best-selling mystery novels.
Margaret is the daughter of 33rd president Harry S. Truman and his wife, Bess Truman.
Their sons are: Clifton Truman Daniel (born 1957), William Wallace Daniel (1959 - 2000), who was killed in a taxi cab collision in New York City, Harrison Gates Daniel (born 1963), and Thomas Washington Daniel (born 1966).
American President (1662 words)
Truman served one term, was defeated for a second, and then became presiding judge in 1926, a position he held until 1934.
Truman won the presidential nomination of a severely divided Democratic party in the summer of 1948 and faced New York’s Republican governor Thomas Dewey in the general election.
Truman’s popularity sank during his second term, due largely to accusations of corruption, charges that the administration was “soft on communism,” and the stalemated Korean War.
