When Richard Nixon took office in January , Hoover had just turned There was a growing sentiment in Washington, D. On May 3, , Nixon appointed L.

Mark Felt becoming Associate Director. Hoover's body lay in state in the Rotunda of the U. Capitol , [89] where Chief Justice Warren Burger eulogized him.

For better or worse, he built the FBI into a modern, national organization stressing professionalism and scientific crime-fighting. For most of his life, Americans considered him a hero.

He made the G-Man brand so popular that, at its height, it was harder to become an FBI agent than to be accepted into an Ivy League college. In there was a large increase in conflict in the House Select Committee on Assassinations HSCA under Senator Richard Schweiker , which had re-opened the investigation of the assassination of President Kennedy and reported that Hoover's FBI failed to investigate adequately the possibility of a conspiracy to assassinate the President.

The FBI is tending in that direction. They are dabbling in sex-life scandals and plain blackmail. Edgar Hoover would give his right eye to take over, and all congressmen and senators are afraid of him.

Because Hoover's actions came to be seen as abuses of power , FBI directors are now limited to one year term, [97] subject to extension by the United States Senate.

Edgar Hoover Building , after Hoover. Because of the controversial nature of Hoover's legacy, there have been periodic proposals to rename it by legislation proposed by both Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate.

The first such proposal came just two months after the building's inauguration. Edgar Hoover F. Building" to simply the "F.

Edgar Hoover's name on the FBI building is a stain on the building. Hoover's practice of violating civil liberties for the sake of national security has been questioned in reference to recent national surveillance programs.

Hoover received his first dog from his parents when he was a child, after which he was never without one. He owned many throughout his lifetime and became an aficionado especially knowledgeable in breeding of pedigrees, particularly Cairn Terriers and Beagles.

From the s, rumors circulated that Hoover, who was still living with his mother in his early 40s, was homosexual. Theoharis speculated that Clyde Tolson, who became an assistant director to Hoover in his mid 40s, was a homosexual lover to Hoover until his death and became his primary heir.

Edgar Hoover's sexuality, entitled "Is J. Edgar Hoover a Fag? Some associates and scholars dismiss rumors about Hoover's sexuality, and rumors about his relationship with Tolson in particular, as unlikely, [] [] [] while others have described them as probable or even "confirmed".

Cox and Theoharis concluded that "the strange likelihood is that Hoover never knew sexual desire at all. Hoover described Tolson as his alter ego : the men worked closely together during the day and, both single, frequently took meals, went to night clubs, and vacationed together.

Some FBI employees who knew them, such as Mark Felt , say the relationship was "brotherly"; however former FBI official Mike Mason suggested that some of Hoover's colleagues denied that he had a sexual relationship with Tolson in an effort to protect Hoover's image.

The novelist William Styron told Summers that he once saw Hoover and Tolson in a California beach house, where the director was painting his friend's toenails.

Hoover bequeathed his estate to Tolson, who moved into Hoover's house after Hoover died. Tolson accepted the American flag that draped Hoover's casket.

Tolson is buried a few yards away from Hoover in the Congressional Cemetery. One of Hoover's biographers Richard Hack does not believe the director was gay.

Hack notes that Hoover was romantically linked to actress Dorothy Lamour in the late s and early s and that after Hoover's death, Lamour did not deny rumors that she had had an affair with him.

Edgar Hoover , stated that there was no ambiguity about the FBI director's sexual proclivities and described him as "bisexual with failed heterosexuality.

Hack further reported that, during the s and s, Hoover attended social events with Lela Rogers , the divorced mother of dancer and actress Ginger Rogers , so often that many of their mutual friends assumed the pair would eventually marry.

Hoover kept a large collection of pornographic material, possibly the world's largest, [] of films, photographs, and written materials, with particular emphasis on nude photos of celebrities.

Hoover reportedly used these for his own titillation, as well as holding them for blackmail purposes. Edgar Hoover , journalist Anthony Summers quoted "society divorcee" Susan Rosenstiel as claiming to have seen Hoover engaging in cross-dressing in the s, at all-male parties.

Summers alleged the Mafia had blackmail material on Hoover, which made Hoover reluctant to pursue organized crime aggressively.

According to Summers, organized crime figures Meyer Lansky and Frank Costello obtained photos of Hoover's alleged homosexual activity with Tolson and used them to ensure that the FBI did not target their illegal activities.

Another Hoover biographer who heard the rumors of homosexuality and blackmail, however, said he was unable to corroborate them, [] though it has been acknowledged that Lansky and other organized crime figures had frequently been allowed to visit the Del Charro Hotel in La Jolla, California , which was owned by Hoover's friend, and staunch Lyndon Johnson supporter, Clint Murchison Sr.

Skeptics of the cross-dressing story point to Susan Rosenstiel's lack of credibility she pleaded guilty to attempted perjury in a case and later served time in a New York City jail.

Most biographers consider the story of Mafia blackmail unlikely in light of the FBI's continuing investigations of the Mafia.

In the words of author Thomas Doherty, "For American popular culture, the image of the zaftig FBI director as a Christine Jorgensen wanna-be was too delicious not to savor.

The attorney Roy Cohn served as general counsel on the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations during Senator Joseph McCarthy 's tenure as chairman and assisted Hoover during the s investigations of Communists [] and was generally known to be a closeted homosexual.

During the Lavender scare , Cohn and McCarthy further enhanced anti-Communist fervor by suggesting that Communists overseas had convinced several closeted homosexuals within the U.

Eisenhower to sign an Executive Order on April 29, , that barred homosexuals from obtaining jobs at the federal level. In his study of the event, historian David K.

Johnson attacked the speculations about Hoover's homosexuality as relying on "the kind of tactics Hoover and the security program he oversaw perfected: guilt by association, rumor, and unverified gossip.

Some people associated with Hoover have supported the rumors about his homosexuality. Luisa Stuart, a model who was 18 or 19 at the time, told Summers that she had seen Hoover holding hands with Tolson as they all rode in a limo uptown to the Cotton Club in Actress and singer Ethel Merman was a friend of Hoover's from , and familiar with all parties during his alleged romance of Lela Rogers.

In a interview, she said: "Some of my best friends are homosexual: Everybody knew about J. Edgar Hoover, but he was the best chief the FBI ever had.

Edgar Hoover was the nominal author of a number of books and articles, although it is widely believed that all of these were ghostwritten by FBI employees.

The two teams were apprehended after one of the agents contacted the FBI and told them everything - he was also charged, and convicted.

During this time period President Franklin D. Roosevelt , out of concern over Nazi agents in the United States, gave "qualified permission" to wiretap persons "suspected He went on to add, in , that the United States Attorney General had to be informed of its use in each case.

The Attorney General Robert H. Jackson left it to Hoover to decide how and when to use wiretaps, as he found the "whole business" distasteful.

Jackson's successor at the post of Attorney General, Francis Biddle , did turn down Hoover's requests on occasion. They did not initially realize that espionage was being committed, but the Soviet's multiple use of one-time pad ciphers which with single use are unbreakable created redundancies that allowed some intercepts to be decoded.

These established that espionage was being carried out. In , Attorney General Tom C. Clark authorized Hoover to compile a list of potentially disloyal Americans who might be detained during a wartime national emergency.

Truman did not act on the plan. In , Hoover was becoming increasingly frustrated by U. Supreme Court decisions that limited the Justice Department's ability to prosecute people for their political opinions, most notably communists.

Some of his aides reported that he purposely exaggerated the threat of communism to "ensure financial and public support for the FBI.

Hoover amassed significant power by collecting files containing large amounts of compromising and potentially embarrassing information on many powerful people, especially politicians.

Kelley thought such files either did not exist or had been destroyed. After The Washington Post broke a story in January , Kelley searched and found them in his outer office.

The House Judiciary Committee then demanded that Silberman testify about them. In , several years before he targeted King, Hoover had a public showdown with T.

Howard , a civil rights leader from Mound Bayou, Mississippi. During a national speaking tour, Howard had criticized the FBI's failure to investigate thoroughly the racially motivated murders of George W.

Lee , Lamar Smith , and Emmett Till. Hoover wrote an open letter to the press singling out these statements as "irresponsible. Hoover's moves against people who maintained contacts with subversive elements, some of whom were members of the civil rights movement , also led to accusations of trying to undermine their reputations.

The treatment of Martin Luther King Jr. Kennedy that King had tried to arrange a sex party while in the capital for the March on Washington and that Hoover told Robert F.

Kennedy that King had made derogatory comments during the President's funeral. King's aide Andrew Young later claimed in a interview with the Academy of Achievement , that the main source of tension between the SCLC and FBI was the government agency's lack of black agents, and that both parties were willing to co-operate with each other by the time the Selma to Montgomery marches had taken place.

In one particularly controversial incident, white civil rights worker Viola Liuzzo was murdered by Ku Klux Klansmen , who had given chase and fired shots into her car after noticing that her passenger was a young black man; one of the klansmen was Gary Thomas Rowe , an acknowledged FBI informant.

Edgar Hoover personally communicated these insinuations to President Johnson. Hoover also personally intervened to prevent federal prosecutions against the Ku Klux Klan members responsible for the terrorist bombing attack against the 16th Street Baptist Church.

Edgar Hoover formally blocked any impending federal prosecutions against the suspects and refused to share, with state or federal prosecutors, any of the evidence which his agents had obtained.

The files were sealed by order of Hoover. One of his biographers, Kenneth Ackerman, wrote that the allegation that Hoover's secret files kept presidents from firing him "is a myth.

Kennedy considered dismissing Hoover as FBI Director, but ultimately concluded that the political cost of doing so would be too great. Despite Valenti's two-year marriage to Johnson's personal secretary, the investigation focused on rumors that he was having a gay relationship with a commercial photographer friend.

In , just days before Hoover testified in the earliest stages of the Warren Commission hearings, President Lyndon B.

Johnson waived the then-mandatory U. The report criticized the FBI's Hoover's reluctance to investigate thoroughly the possibility of a conspiracy to assassinate the President.

Hoover took advantage of this to publicize the achievements of the FBI in tracking down and capturing well-known criminals.

In the late s President Franklin D. Roosevelt gave him the task of investigating both foreign espionage in the United States and the activities of communists and fascists alike.

When the Cold War began in the late s, the FBI undertook the intensive surveillance of communists and other left-wing activists in the United States.

At the same time, he maintained a hands-off policy toward the Mafia , which was allowed to conduct its operations nationwide practically free of FBI scrutiny or interference.

Hoover meets lawyer Clyde Tolson , and hires him. When the Lindbergh kidnapping captures national attention, President Herbert Hoover asks the Bureau to investigate.

Hoover employs several novel techniques, including the monitoring of registration numbers on ransom bills and expert analysis of the kidnapper's handwriting.

When the monitored bills begin showing up in New York City , the investigators find a filling station attendant who wrote down the license plate number of the man who gave him the bill.

This leads to the arrest, and eventual conviction, of Bruno Richard Hauptmann for the kidnapping and murder of the Lindbergh child.

Rogers' mother asks Hoover to dance and he becomes agitated, saying that he and Tolson must leave, as they have a lot of work to do in the morning. When he gets home, he tells his mother that he dislikes dancing with girls.

She tells him she would rather her son be dead than a " daffodil ". She insists on teaching him to dance, and they dance in her bedroom.

Hoover and Tolson go on a vacation to the horse races. That evening, Hoover tells Tolson that he cares deeply for him, and Tolson tells Hoover that he loves him.

The website's critical consensus reads, "Leonardo DiCaprio gives a predictably powerhouse performance, but J. Edgar stumbles in all other departments: cheesy makeup, poor lighting, confusing narrative, and humdrum storytelling.

Roger Ebert awarded the film three-and-a-half stars out of four and wrote that the film is "fascinating" and "masterful".

He praised DiCaprio's performance as a "fully-realized, subtle and persuasive performance, hinting at more than Hoover ever revealed, perhaps even to himself".

Peter Debruge of Variety gave the film a mixed review: "Any movie in which the longtime FBI honcho features as the central character must supply some insight into what made him tick, or suffer from the reality that the Bureau's exploits were far more interesting than the bureaucrat who ran it — a dilemma J.

Edgar never rises above. Edgar is so shapeless and turgid and ham-handed, so rich in bad lines and worse readings. In an interview on All Things Considered , Yale University history professor Beverly Gage, who is writing a biography of Hoover, stated that the film accurately conveys that Hoover came to the FBI as a reformer seeking "to clean it up, to professionalize it," and to introduce scientific methods to its investigation, eventually including such practices as fingerprinting and bloodtyping.

She praises DiCaprio for conveying the tempo of Hoover's speech.
