J. Edgar Hoover & the Library of Congress

strict warning: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/websites/teachinghistory.org/sites/all/modules/date/date_api.module on line 866.

In this video from The Library of Congress Webcasts series, author Kenneth Ackerman describes his new book Young J. Edgar: Hoover, the Red Scare and the Assault on Civil Liberties. The book itself "brings to life the nationwide Palmer raids of 1919-20 and the coming of age of the seminal FBI director, including his four-year career (1913-17) at the Library of Congress."
