On August 27, 2013, FBI employees gathered in the courtyard of the J. Edgar Hoover FBI Headquarters building in Washington, D.C. for a ceremony honoring outgoing Director Robert S. Mueller, III. They were joined by Deputy Director Sean Joyce (left), as well as the three previous FBI Directors—(from right) Judge Louis J. Freeh, Judge William S. Sessions, and Judge William H. Webster—in thanking the Director for his leadership. Mueller, whose last day as head of the Bureau is September 4, will be succeeded by James Comey, who was also present at the event.
