J. Edgar Hoover’s 50th Death Anniversary († May 2, 1972)

Revered by some to be the mastermind of the fight against crime, but also regarded by others as the sinister godfather of the modern surveillance state - J. Edgar Hoover. His name is inextricably linked with the FBI; after all, he headed the Federal Bureau of Investigation for almost five decades - from 1924 until his death in 1972 and under no less than eight presidents.

The law graduate introduces the U.S. Federal Police to scientifically based forensic procedures and a sophisticated index card system that could link acquired data and existing files, thus professionalizing the agency. His ambitions go far beyond curbing crime, though: he also creates notorious secret dossiers, in which he collects juicy information on countless public figures - sometimes using illegal methods. The reason for this is that throughout his life the top policeman of the USA is driven by the "fear of the red scare" and he paranoically pursues everything that looks to him like it might have something to do with communism. Thus, his measures are directed in particular against trade unionists and war opponents, students and journalists, artists and civil rights activists. Among his most prominent victims are Charlie Chaplin, Berthold Brecht and - above all - Martin Luther King. Even the US presidents fear the FBI director's knowledge of their little secrets, which leaves him with an almost unlimited power.

Hoover also cleverly utilizes the media for his own purposes, on the one hand by providing them with explosive material on disagreeable individuals, and on the other by exaggerating the successes of his agency. He personally supervises - and influences - the production of glorifying films and television series about the FBI. Despite his well-known abuse of power, the FBI's headquarters in Washington, D.C., is named after him in his honour - and still bears his name today.
