'Hoover died sometime Monday night at his Georgian-style limiie on the edge of Washington's Hock Creek Park. Word of his passing triggered a vast collection of tributes from public figures around the nation, including many of his more vocal critics. .Jt w;is, in a way, a storybook ending for the man and his 48- year career as director, a man regarded by politicians--and the gangsters he pursued--as untouchable. A onetime Presbyterian choir bay who alsvays retained a deep religious streak, Hoover began his government career while still in high school as a $3ft-a-nionlh messenger for the Library of Congress, five blocks jroni his childhood home. In those days he fancied himself a baseball player, but after one . misjudged fly ball per-: nianently'flattened his nose he, turned to debating and then to; lajv school. IJis first big job with the Justice Department.was in World War I when he handled deportation proceedings against .250 "alien agitators." · He was named assistant director of tfie FBI In 1921, and acting director three years later. He was only 29 years old. In surprisingly short, order, Hoo- vej : was credited with having molded the agency into a law- enforcement model. He began with, fewer than'500 employes. Nojy the. FBI has more than ]9,0i», including 8,600 agents. And .-Hoover added a massive crirne lab, a training academy, and; among all manner of files, some 81- million sets of fingerprints. 1 . ' . - . In the early days, Hoover was .the. darling of newsreels and his pugnacies face graced tli'S front page of untold tab-! lofcfs--in sharp contrast to his more recent disdain for news- meh--as his men captured or killed one brazen "public enemy" after another. In one of Ihe few early In stances where Hoover ran into congressional criticism, Sen Kemielh D. McKellar called him an armchair detective who left, it to his men to risk their lives and had never made an surest- himself.
