Margaret Suckley (pronounced "Sook-lee") (December 20, 1891 - June 29, 1991) was a close friend and confidant of Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR), and the archivist at the first American presidential library. Generally called 'Daisy' by those who knew her, she was born December 20, 1891 at Wilderstein in the Hudson Valley, and died June 29, 1991 in Rhinebeck, New York, after living to nearly 100 years old. She was a neighbor and sixth cousin of President Roosevelt. She was one of the four women with Roosevelt in his house, the Little White House, in Warm Springs, Georgia, when he died of cerebral hemorrhage in 1945. The exact nature of their relationship is unknown, although there is considerable evidence that their relationship was at least intellectually, if not physically, intimate, and it became widely known on the discovery after her death of thousands of pages of notes, diary entries, and letters in a black suitcase under her bed. She gave Roosevelt his dog Fala, and wrote a children's book on the dog. One of the rare photographs of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in a wheelchair was taken by her.
