In reply to: Pam 's message, "WEH2 author F. Scott Fitzgeralds daughter Scottie?" on Sat March 15, 2008 4:03am CST

Scottie died in 1986.
This is from wikipedia:
Frances Scott "Scottie" Fitzgerald (October 26, 1921 June 18, 1986) was the only child of Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald and novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald. She was a writer, journalist, and a prominent member of the United States Democratic Party.

"Scottie" was born in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Her mother supposedly remarked upon her birth that she was glad to have borne a girl and that she hoped she would be a "beautiful little fool." In The Great Gatsby (1925), Daisy Buchanan says this of her young daughter.

She had four children with her first husband, Samuel Jackson Lanahan. She later married Grove Smith. Both men were lawyers, and both marriages ended in divorce.

She is the subject of the biography, "Scottie, The Daughter of . . . : The Life of Frances Scott Fitzgerald Lanahan Smith," which was written by her daughter Eleanor Lanahan.


I am the fan and autograph collector from the Obit Board- when I just saw your post- I thought maybe I could locate her- I would love to ahve had her autograph- I collect everybody who is anybody- years ago when I was a young collector, an autograph collectors publication gave the addresses of living (at the time) children of Presidents- I wrote to many- and got some interesting replies about their memories of living in the White House, etc- I collect for fun and my interests- much of what I have is probably not worth much, but they priceless to me- it's sort of like Trivial Persuit Written By the Hands of the not so Famous!
