James R. Hoffa (1913 – 1975) was President of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) from 1957 to 1971. Hoffa’s time as Union President was remembered for his advocacy for workers’ rights and his role in expanding the union’s influence, but also by numerous legal controversies and convictions. He was convicted of jury tampering, attempted bribery, and fraud in 1967, leading to a prison sentence. In 1971, Hoffa was released from prison after receiving a commutation from President Richard Nixon, with the condition that he not engage in union activities until 1980. Hoffa’s disappearance on July 30, 1975, remains unsolved, leading to widespread speculation and investigation. He was officially declared dead in 1982.
