Rare Signatures of the ill-fated starlet Suzan Ball, signing with her married name. Along with Harry S. Truman's only daughter signing on the verso
Signature: "Suzan Ball Long," and co-signed: "Margaret Truman", on verso, 5x3. Suzan Ball Long (1934-1955) was an American actress and singer, cousin to Lucille Ball, who appeared in several films, including Untamed Frontier (1952), Yankee Buccaneer (1952), and Chief Crazy Horse (1955). The actress, sadly, died of cancer just a few months after her 21st birthday. Still, in her short career, she managed to appear in 9 films and 2 television shows, namely the Ed Sullivan Show (1955) and A Star is Born World Premier (1954). She was married to actor, Richard Long. Mary MargaretTruman (1924-2008), the only daughter of Harry and Bess Truman (1885-1982), had divided her time between Independence, Missouri and Washington, D.C. during her father's years in the Senate (1935-1945). Bess and Margaret were at home when Truman, who had been sworn in as Franklin D. Roosevelt's vice president in 1945, called to tell them that FDR had died. During her father's tenure as 33rd U.S. President (1945-1953), Margaret embarked on a singing career, appearing in concert and on the radio. Married to Clifton Daniel from 1956 until his death in 2000, Margaret, the mother of four sons, has also written several books, including biographies of her mother and father, Bess W. Truman and Harry S Truman, and mystery novels. Toned. Signature on verso light in contrast, but legible. Otherwise, fine condition.
