Part 4 Harry S. Truman 1945-1953 Dwight D. Eisenhower 1953-1961 The frantic pace of the war years and frequent visits by world leaders take a toll on the White House servants. Now retired, Maggie is quick to respond when Mrs. Roosevelt asks her to return to help with a very special guest. While the creaking old White House undergoes renovation, Roosevelt's successor, Harry S. Truman (Harry Morgan), moves his family to Blair House. The move necessitates a staff reduction, and Lillian is dismissed after 20 years of service. Truman's surprise defeat of Thomas Dewey returns him to office and returns Lillian to presidential service. She goes on to serve at the White House through the two terms of Dwight D. Eisenhower (Andrew Duggan).
