The exact nature of the relationship between J. Edgar Hoover and Clyde Tolson will probably never be known for sure. What we do know is that the two were companions of the closest nature and worked, ate, socialized, and even vacationed together for much of their lives. The offered image is a unique image of the two together from 1937 in Trenton, New Jersey. Hoover was of course the head of the FBI and one of the most influential and powerful men in 20th century America. This is a unique new discovery from the New York Daily News and with a full paper caption on the back, being offered here for the first time ever.
