Mark Felt was the Associate Director of the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the effective second in command to J. Edgar Hoover and subsequently L. Patrick Gray III. The FBI Pyramid chronicles the FBI bureaucracy during the 1960s and 1970s. It gained interest in 2005, with the revelation that Felt was "Deep Throat", the Watergate scandal whistleblower who assisted Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward in his and Carl Bernstein's investigation.
