In 1906, President Teddy Roosevelt and his Attorney General Charles Bonaparte agreed that the federal government needed to prevent corruption in American society. It was widespread and out of hand. General Bonaparte put together a small investigative group. In 1909, under President Taft, the group was named the Bureau of Investigation, a name that remained until officially being renamed the Federal Bureau of Investigation in 1935.
