It was the end of an era.   We remember that J. Edgar Hoover, Director of the FBI, died on this day in 1972.   

Hoover was appointed Director in 1924.   He built an amazing crime fighting organization that earned the respect of most Americans.   He also kept files on US presidents and harassed his opponents.

On balance, he built the FBI.   He also stayed too long.   As a result, we now have a 10-year term for the FBI Director.
