and 1930s.

from 1917 to 1941.

2003 HSC

Question 5 (20 marks)
(b) J Edgar Hoover
(i) Identify the major features of the life of J Edgar Hoover in the period
1917–1941.
(ii) ‘J Edgar Hoover, a man of secrets, held enormous influence over the
direction taken by the USA before World War II.’ In the light of this statement, assess Hoover’s contribution to social conservatism and anti-communism in the period up to 1941.


2003 CSSA

Question 5 (20 marks)
J Edgar Hoover
i) Describe significant influences in the career of J Edgar Hoover
ii) “Political and civil unrest infiltrated American society”
In light of this statement, assess the extent to which J Edgar Hoover resolved problems in American society up to 1941.



NOTE: with Hoover, the first question will always be a straight "tell us all you know about Hoover" question (for people reading this in the distant future, ie, from 2006, this is subject to change.) It is also worth mentioning that the second question, can only ever come from three questions. More than not, they will be asking you to assess Hoover's contribution to
  • conservatism
  • anti communism
  • or law enforcement

Good luck to everyone. :)

Thats why I wish I did Hoover instead of Hearst...with Hearst they can ask all kind of random ones like:
Outline Hearsts business life...or personal life...or contribution to the newspapers of USA...

Then again, apparently only 90 kids Hearst last year (!) so I have a good chance of whipping arse in that section... :D
