The ‘G’ In G-Man Stood For Gay

J. Edgar Hoover, Director of the FBI for over 50-years, was a rabid right-wing fanatic who used illegal wiretaps, malicious gossip, and innuendo to blackmail Presidents into letting him keep his position until the day he died. His reign crushed the rights, the careers, and sometimes even the lives of countless Americans who had the audacity to disagree with “The Director” or whom he thought were “commonist”.

After finishing two, well-researched biographies of Hoover, I can also add another adjective to the mix: pathetic.  Hoover probably knew he was gay since high school – he just never could admit it.  He found it nearly impossible to change or suppress his sexual preference completely. The large “girlie” centerfolds he hung in his home’s bar embarrassed and saddened his guests.

For nearly half a century, his relationship to Clyde Tolson, who became the powerful FBI Assistant Director, was an “open secret” in Washington.  Everyone “knew” – but no one talked about it.  The dismal part is Hoover’s hypocrisy demanded he create a macho public image firing gay FBI agents and leaking rumors of his enemies’ homosexual dalliances to Congress.

Once, Tolson had to be hospitalized.  “Hysterectomy?” joked one FBI Agent.  Hoover fired him on the spot.
