After operatic vocal training, Margaret Truman, the only child of President Harry S. 
Truman, began a singing career with a debut radio recital on ABC. Reviewers were 
not always kind, such as Washington Post music critic Paul Hume who wrote that 
Truman was “extremely attractive on stage…(but) cannot sing very well.” She
continued to performed on stage, radio, and television until the mid-1950s.
