Book cover.

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt considered his savvy personal secretary, Marguerite Alice “Missy” LeHand, one of the most vital, and certainly one of the most loyal, members of his inner circle. Far more than a secretary, Missy fulfilled the crucial duties of chief of staff (long before the position was formally created), and she was a persuasive voice in policy decisions and appointment recommendations. She was also FDR’s confidante, his support when he contracted polio, and his close friend. Journalist Kathryn Smith finally tells Missy’s story in The Gatekeeper.
