Document Deep Dive: Richard Nixon’s Application to Join the FBI 
Fresh out of law school, the future president first hoped he could be one of J. Edgar Hoover’s agents 
by Megan Gambino
The abridged biography of Richard Nixon, as most know it, goes something like this. Born the son of a grocer and housewife, Nixon grew up in southern California and attended Whittier College, a small liberal arts college less than 20 miles from Los Angeles. He graduated from Duke University’s law school, moved home to California and started practicing law. He was first elected as a U.S. congressman in 1946 and then a senator in 1950, then served as vice president and eventually the president, before resigning in the wake of the Watergate scandal.
The National Archives, however, adds a surprising little insert into that timeline. That is, a 24-year-old Nixon applied to be a special agent in the FBI in 1937.

Bet yall didn’t know President Woodrow Wilson lived in South Carolina once! His Columbia, South Carolina home still stands and is now a museum to him, he lived in Columbia from 1870-1874, his parents are buried in Columbia, too, at the First Presbyterian Church cemetery, I’ve visited their graves a few times, I’ve never been to the museum in his old home, I’ve walked/drove by it many times, the Chesnut Cottage (Columbia home of Mary Boykin Chesnut, where Jefferson Davis addressed the people of Columbia, I’ve stayed there and in the room he stayed in while he was there, soo awesome) is across the street a few lots over from the Woodrow Wilson house, Chesnut wrote a big part of her diary there, so yeah, Woodrow Wilson is technically South Carolinian, at least to me, lol

Historic Columbia has actually just finished a multi-phase, comprehensive rehabilitation and restoration of the Woodrow Wilson Family Home. The property reopened this past February.
“Following scientific paint analysis, it is a house whose colors Wilson would have known well. In the wake of restorative carpentry, its rooms now flow as they did when new in 1871.
The Woodrow Wilson Family Home features professionally designed exhibit galleries, period vignettes, virtual tours and wayside signage that grants visitors an interpretive experience never before encountered at this venerable landmark. Benefiting from countless hours of research on the part of contemporary scholars and staff, Historic Columbia will delve into the Reconstruction era in the only home owned by the parents of the man who became the 28th president of the United States and the world’s first modern international statesman.”
