While pondering the question of whether J. Edgar Hoover was part black (see previous post), it occurred to me that the one person Hoover resembles most, ironically enough, is Jesse Jackson. Both men have their eyes spaced far apart, often a sign of fetal alcohol syndrome, and both have a somewhat bug-eyed appearance as well:

J. Edgar Hoover was supposedly gay. I have known two women who worked as secretaries while he was head of the FBI. They both had seen him during their time working for the agency.
