FBI Director Profiles, Part 1 of 2

In the first of a two-part series on the FBI's past directors, NPR's Barbara Bradley profiles J. Edgar Hoover, the bureau's best-know director. Hoover reformed the FBI's reputation for scandal and corruption and pushed it to a new position of prominence. But his accomplishments have been largely overshadowed by his later abuses of power.
