(The other was destroyed soon after his death in 1972.) Hoover's office files contain important policy documents pertaining to wiretapping, bugging, break-ins, and authorizations to investigate subversive activities.

Chronologically, the file is strongest in the 1940s and 1950s."

FBI Wiretaps, Bugs & Break-ins Microform: The National Security Electronic Surveillance Card File & the Surreptitious Entries File (1941-1980)

  • Microfilm HV 8144 .F43 F357 1988
  • 4 reels
  • 17-page guide -- Reference HV 8144 .F43 F357 1988

"The National Security Electronic Surveillance Card File originated in 1941 as the Symbol Number Sensitive Source Index. Kept at FBI headquarters, this was a card file that indicated next to a "symbol number" the specific source of field reports originating from informers, wiretaps, bugs, mail covers or intercepts, and break-ins.

The FBI has released from the inactive files approximately 700 cards identifying targeted organizations together with the start and end dates of the surveillance. It has deleted the symbol numbers and any geographic locations from the released cards and has not released cards showing individuals as subjects. Thus the absence of a card cannot be interpreted to mean there was no such surveillance of an organization or its officers. There are no cards, for instance, on the Communist Party. But from the cards released, the researcher can trace in other sources the FBI's uses of the information. The cards also serve to suggest the agency's priorities and tactics.

J. Edgar Hoover never intended that historians should see documentation of the FBI's "black bag jobs," as they were called before being renamed "surreptitious entries." But after his death in 1972, his elaborate systems for preserving deniability broke down. Justice Department attorneys in 1975 discovered a large cache of records in the office safe of Thomas Malone, special agent in charge in New York City, who had failed to comply with the director's orders for the destruction of such material every six months.

The Surreptitious Entries File (FBI 62-117166) reproduced here includes the released files of the Malone safe along with the records of the Justice Department inquiries of 1975-1980 that led to the discovery and use of the files in litigation (originally FBI 66-1860). The most prominent subjects of the documents were the Socialist Workers Party and the Weather Underground, both dating from the early 1970s."
