Dear xxxxxxxxx:

This is in response to your request for a copy of the charter of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Our research shows that while most entities within the federal government are officially established and defined by charter, the F.B.I. is not. The Attorney General created the F.B.I. in 1908 (The United States Government Manual 347-8 (1984)). The bureau's activities have since been outlined by various statutory authority.

The date you mentioned in your letter identifies a proposal made in Congress that a formal charter be adopted. The charter, however, was not approved. We are enclosing a machine-produced bibliography of material pertaining to that proposal. You may obtain further information to assist you in your research by writing to the Office of the Director, Federal Bureau of Investigation, J. Edgar Hoover Building, Ninth Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20535.

If we can be of further assistance, please let us know.
