MARGUERITE A. "MISSY" LEHAND - TYPED LETTER SIGNED 06/05/1934 - DOCUMENT 26562
 
MARGUERITE "MISSY" LeHAND
Executive Secretary and "office wife" to FDR.
Typed Letter Signed: "M. A. LeHand" as Private Secretary, 1p, 6¼x9¼. The White House, Washington, 1934 June 5. To Dwight L. Hoopingarner, Esqr., New York, New York. Begins: "My dear Mr. Hoopingarner". She has crossed out "Mr. Hoopingarner:" and handwritten: "Hoopy -". In full: "The President has had much pleasure in signing the photograph which you left at this office recently and I am returning it to you today under separate cover." Photo not included. Marguerite LeHand, nicknamed "Missy" by FDR's children, began her employment with Franklin D. Roosevelt after his defeat as the Democratic nominee for Vice President and continued as his secretary and confidant until 1941, when she suffered a debilitating stroke. In 1921, the year after she began their 21-year association, FDR suffered his polio attack, and LeHand often accompanied him to Warm Springs, Georgia where he went for treatment. FDR's wife Eleanor disliked Warm Springs. Speculation arose over LeHand's relationship with FDR as they were often alone there as well as in Albany when Roosevelt was Governor and later in the White House, where LeHand served as hostess when Eleanor was absent. Not only responsible for FDR's correspondence, much of which she answered herself, LeHand held his power of attorney and managed his accounts, writing checks for his bills. Fine condition.
