When & how did Lyndon Johnson/J. Edgar Hoover friendship begin?


Recommended Posts

Can anyone share details and sources, online or otherwise, on when & how LBJ and J. Edgar Hoover met and became tight?

Was it in 1948?

I'm looking for elaboration on this statement:

"An interesting aside, the Johnson and Hoover friendship dated back to the FBI investigation of the 1948 ballot-rigging case."

Myra, I don't know when their "relationship" began, but at the time LBJ moved into the White House he was back door neighbors with Hover (literaly, not figuratively), sharing a common fence that had a gate so they could visit each other without going out onto the street.

Ah, that's where that "neighbor" claim comes from.

I was fixin' to ask about that and you saved me the trouble.

Thanks BK.
