L. PATRICK GRAY III
The former FBI official signs on this 5x3 card in black ink
Signature: "L. Patrick Gray III", 5x3 card. In 1972, L. Patrick Gray (1916-2005) had been appointed by President Nixon to be Acting Director of the FBI upon J. Edgar Hoover's death. FBI Deputy Director W. Mark Felt had hoped he would have been appointed FBI Director. A disappointed Felt then became the "Deep Throat" source to reporters Woodward and Bernstein in the Watergate scandal. A year after he became Acting Director, Gray withdrew his name from Senate consideration as candidate for permanent Director. He resigned from the FBI on April 27, 1973. In 1978, Gray was indicted for approving break-ins during the Nixon administration, but he was never prosecuted. Gray and two other FBI officials were also charged with authorizing raids without warrants in search of members of a radical anti-war group, the Weather Underground, whose members were called the Weathermen. In 1980, the U.S. government dropped the charges against Gray, and President Reagan later pardoned the two FBI officials. Light pencil erasures at upper margin. Fine condition.
