Hoover, J. Edgar. J. Edgar Hoover Initialed FBI Private Memorandum Regarding Truman. Washington, D.C., December 2, 1952. A “Personal and Confidential” memorandum, from the Director of the FBI to the Attorney General. Its subject being “President Truman, Information Concerning.” Given that at that time James McGranery was a lame duck Attorney General, it can only be surmised that J. Edgar Hoover intended for this memo to become part of the official record, to induce a criminal investigation of President Harry S. Truman for corruption and assorted criminal actions during his presidency. The nine page attachment to this confidential memo details alleged specific instances of enrichment through real estate schemes and various nefarious activities, with names and dates of wrongdoing spelled out in great detail. A likely never previously disclosed document, evidencing the FBI Director’s manipulative conduct of his office for personal furtherance. J. Edgar Hoover was the first Director of the new FBI, beginning in 1935 until his death in 1972. This is the original typed document, initialed in manuscript “JEH” and stamped with oval receipt date stamp of the Office of the Attorney General, dated December 3, 1952. Together with carbon copy of the memo and original envelope addressed to the Attorney General. 10 pages total, 8 ½ x 11”. Very good.
