In character, as Missy LeHand  we were treated to much information about Franklin Delano Roosevelt.  Marguerite "Missy" LeHand was the right hand woman to FDR and was widely considered the first and only female presidential chief of staff. She brought greetings from President Roosevelt and thanks for South Carolina giving him 98% of the vote.  She told how she, the grandchild of Irish Immigrants, who came over during the potato famine, met FDR and became his personal secretary for more than twenty years. She spoke of Warm Springs GA and the mineral springs that polio patients often received benefits from.  President Roosevelt bought the facility and spent much time there.  The March of Dimes was founded by FDR.  Missy lived on the third floor of the White House as did many of the people who worked for the Roosevelts.  FDR died of a Cerebral hemorage at Warm Springs on April 12, 1945.  Missy who worked very hard died of a stroke at the age of 47.  The  biography of Marguerite LeHand, "The Gatekeeper", is so named because she was the one that anyone who wanted access to the President had to get through.
