Join us in learning more about White House History right from your own home. Our Facebook Live series, White House History Live, delves into the stories that make up the history of the Executive Mansion.

Dr. Beverly Gage joins the program to discuss her Pulitzer Prize-winning book, G-Man: J. Edgar Hoover and the Making of the American Century. As FBI director from 1924 through his death in 1972, Hoover was a confidant, counselor, and adversary to eight U.S. presidents. His story also reflects how governance, policing, race, ideology, political culture, and federal power evolved over the course of the 20th century.

This event will be live streamed on the White House Historical Association's Facebook and YouTube pages starting at 5:30 pm ET on January 23.
