J. EDGAR HOOVERThe director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation pens his name on this letter responding to the recipient's request for a bulletin Typed Letter signed: "J. E. Hoover" as Director of the Bureau of Investigation, 1p, 8x7. Washington 25. D.C., 1955 April 21. On official United States Department of Justice Federal Bureau of Investigation letterhead. Addressed to “Mr. Harvey Kudler/ Editorial Research/ Look Magazine/ 488 Madison Avenue/ New York 22, New York”. Written to “Dear Mr. Kudler” In full: "The enclosed Uniform Crime Reports bulletin (1954 annual) is in response to your request of February 27, and our reply of March 4. The release for this issue of the bulletin is scheduled for the afternoon of April 25./ Sincerely yours". John Edgar Hoover (1895-1972) 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, establishing the world's largest fingerprint file and founding 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. The Bureau 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. Lightly toned. Corners and edges gently worn, especially at bottom. Otherwise, fine condition.
