Richard Nixon’s application to be an FBI Special Agent, April 29, 1937

From the series: Official and Confidential Subject Files, 1924 - 1972. Records of the Federal Bureau of Investigation

Upon graduating from Duke Law School in 1937, future president Richard M. Nixon submitted this application to be a special agent in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). After his interview with the FBI, he never received a response. Assuming he didn’t get the job, Nixon returned home to California, passed the bar, and began practicing law. It wasn’t until Nixon was Vice President of the United States that he learned what happened with his application. Director of the FBI J. Edgar Hoover told him that he had been accepted as a special agent, but that due to budget cuts, his appointment was held back.

Nixon’s application is among the featured items at the “Making Their Mark: Stories Through Signatures" exhibit now on display at the National Archives Museum.
