Check Out Richard Nixon’s 1937 Application to Be a Special Agent for FBI

When Richard Nixon was 24 years old, he applied to be a special agent in the FBI in 1937.

That application is now on display at National Archives, reports the Smithsonian.

“It is a nice window into a moment in Richard Nixon’s life that people probably don’t think about,” says Jennifer Johnson, the exhibition’s curator. “He has just finished law school, and like everyone, he is clearly trying to figure out what he wants to do.”

Nixon applied to the bureau just after graduating with a law degree in June 1937. But Nixon never got a response after taking a physical exam, according to the Smithsonian.
