Famous Spy Cases
Since its founding in 1908, the US FBI has been involved in many famous cases. Inasmuch as inquiries often are received about them, the Office of Public and Congressional Affairs (OPCA) has prepared monographs on some of the most frequently requested, closed investigations.
The monographs should be considered to be overviews rather than exhaustive treatments. Although additional details on these cases or copies of photographs and illustrations are not available from OPCA, further information on them may be found in libraries.
