Over his 48-year tenure as director of the FBI, John Edgar Hoover was many things to the Bureau, but one of his greatest unofficial roles was that of publicist. Here, Hoover treats entertainment wunderkind Shirley Temple to a tour of the Bureau, in one of his many photo opportunities. The National Geographic Special "The FBI" premieres Wednesday, July 23, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on PBS (please check local listings).
