Margaret Truman and Annette Wright May: 1951

Margaret Truman and Annette Wright May: 1951

The president's daughter with friend Annette Wright aboard the SS America, on the way to Europe. I was fortunate enough to know Ms. Annette Davis Frank, through a family friendship with her daughter. I found this photo in a portfolio that was given to me by her family after she passed away in 2014. She had taken the portfolio on the voyage in 1951. It still had her packing list in it! She was a warm down to earth lady that brought joy into every place she entered.

Note to editor: This was one of two photos that I found and scanned. The other one is of the them sitting on a sofa. I found out that it is part of the Truman Library collection. I did not find the photo I am posting on the Truman Library website, and don't know if it has any copyright.
