By 1952 the McCarthy hearings were well underway.
Bel-Jon had his citizenship, but was nervous to hear from
his wife that the FBI wanted to talk to him. He was quite
relieved to learn that the men who were looking for him
were representatives of the employees of the Fingerprint
Division there to commission him to create a mural to
commemorate Hoover's thirty-fifth anniversary with the
FBI . The mural was displayed for many years in D.C. and
was moved when the FBI relocated the Fingerprint
Division to Clarksburg, WV. The mural is still displayed
