Elmer Lincoln Irey
Elmer was the head of the intelligence unit of the Internal Revenue Service.It was a toss-up between Elmer and J. Edgar Hoover to head The FBI.But FDR passed over Elmer.
Hoover was very jealous of Elmer and kept a file on him.
Much of Elmer's personal papers were donated recently to the new MOB Mus. in Las Vegas, Nev.
