Biography | show moreshow less
J. 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 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. Hoover was intimately involved in the production of The FBI Story. He personally selected Stewart for the lead role, demanded the re-shooting of scenes he considered unsuitable to the Bureau's image, and assigned two agents to observe director Mervyn LeRoy during production.
