I took interest in a file of documents on legendary Sun journalist H.L. Mencken, who apparently traded letters with FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover. Hoover once wrote Mencken to compliment an article entitled, "Reflections on Homicide," ("Your keen analysis of this topic indicates a clear understanding of this particular phase of crime, and I am sure that your readers enjoyed your discussion.") and offered him a tour of the bureau's facilities. Later, when Mencken was writing a book on speech and language, he wrote to Hoover personally to inquire about the origins of the term, "G-Men," referring to federal agents.
