J. EDGAR HOOVER
Thank you letter on his official stationery, to an Ohio admirer
Typed letter signed: "J. Edgar Hoover", 1 page, 8x10½, on letterhead of the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, United States Department of Justice, Washington, DC., 1947 April 8. Addressed to Mrs. G. H. Wolverton, Cambridge, Ohio. In full: "Dear Mrs. Wolverton: Your card postmarked April 3, 1947, has been received and in accordance with your request it is a pleasure to enclose one of my autographed photographs. [not included] With best wishes ad kind regards, Sincerely yours". J. Edgar Hoover (1895-1972, born John Edgar Hoover in Washington, DC) served as the first Director of the FBI from 1924 until his death in 1972. During his 48-year term, he restored order to the department and established the world's largest fingerprint file and the FBI Academy. The FBI fought organized crime in the Prohibition era. Under his direction, the FBI also infiltrated the American Communist Party, the Ku Klux Klan and other subversive organizations. It also conducted counterintelligence during WWII and the Cold War. By the 1970s, Hoover came under frequent public criticism for his authoritarian administration, but his power was so great that no President dared to remove him. Hoover made the FBI one of the world's most effective law enforcement agencies. He established its vast fingerprint file, crime laboratory and training academy. Fold creases through "J." and "g" of signature. Chipped at lower left edge. Folded corner at lower right. Otherwise, fine condition.
