The details (from wikipedia)


Elbert Clifton Daniel, Jr. (September 19, 1912 – February 21, 2000) was managing editor of the New York Times from 1964 to 1969. Before assuming the top editorial job at the paper, he served as the paper's London and Moscow bureau chief.
Clifton Daniel was married to former United States President Harry S Truman's daughter, Margaret. They married on April 21, 1956 at Trinity Episcopal Church in Independence, Missouri. The couple reared four sons and resided in Washington D.C., and New York City during their marriage.


Daniel was born to Elbert Clifton Daniel Sr., the mayor and druggist of Zebulon, North Carolina, and Elvah Jones Daniel in 1912. Having had heart disease, Clifton Daniel suffered a stroke and succumbed on February 21, 2000 at his Park Avenue apartment in Manhattan, aged 87.

He was survived by his wife Margaret, who died in January 2008, and his four sons. His 41-year-old son William Wallace Daniel followed his father in death a little over six months later on September 4, 2000, after being hit by a taxicab in Manhattan.

He appeared as a guest panelist on the June 16, 1957, episode of What's My Line?
