Fala Roosevelt
[Add A Photo]
Fala, after the gravesite ceremony of his master, F.D.R., on April 15th, 1945, being led by his handler, Margaret 'Daisy' Suckley, who raised Fala before presenting him to her cousin Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Miss Suckley is in conversation with her cousin ( and F.D.R.'s as well ) Laura Franklin Delano, who is barely visible behind the unidentified woman in the fur cape. To the right is a member of the Secret Service who accompanied 'Daisy' and Laura to the ceremony. 'Daisy' is taking Fala to her family estate, "Wilderstein", ( Fala's first, and true Home ) in neighboring Rhinebeck, New York, until later claimed by Mrs. Roosevelt. Contributor's collection. NOTE: Refer to the 'Find A Grave' entries for both Margaret Lynch Suckley and Laura Franklin Delano for additional information, and photos of Fala.
