    Robert Kapanjie says:

    F D R died of a massive cerebral hemorrhage brought on by extremely high blood pressure. It is a wonder that he survived for so long with this degree of hypertension. Of course his smoking helped accelerate the atherosclerotic process. In that era there were no effective antihypertensive medications., that would take another decade or two. On that day, April 12, 1945 his portrait was being painted and Lucy Mercer was visiting in Warm Springs. Mrs. Mercer's presence was withheld from Eleanor, understandably so.
