Months before he earned his law degree from Duke University in 1937, for example, Nixon applied for a job with the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Washington. He was turned down not for lack of ability but for budgetary reasons and forced to return to California. There he met and married a local teacher, Thelma Catherine ("Pat") Ryan, and harbored ambitions about becoming involved in Republican state politics while beginning his law practice.
