Donald Tucker      Illinois 

Position(s): RB, DB

Donald Tucker attended Tilden Technical High School and lived in Chicago, Illinois. He had an outstanding high school athletic career, where he excelled in both wrestling and football, and was awarded a scholarship to Iowa.

He worked as an undercover agent for the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (now called the DEA), and United States Secret Service from 1961-1990. This was during some of the toughest years in this country's history of Civil Rights. He has been the recipient of numerous special achievement awards for investigative and supervisory activities, as well as the Secretary of Treasury Award for Outstanding Investigations. He authored several books, including two mystery novels and his autobiography, The Two-Edged Sword.

Exact death date unknown.

Born 6/10/1938 and died on 3/20/2021 at the age of 82.



The Two-Edged Sword The Two-Edged Sword (7/19/2010)
For Donald W. Tucker, life from the get-go was a two-edged sword-a "damned if you do/ damned if you don't" black & white shades & wing-tips jungle existence of working the streets of Southside Chicago undercover ("with no cover") as a Federal narcotics and SS agent. Tucker was quick, sharp and street smart. Ultimately he rose through the ranks to become one of America's foremost federal law enforcement administrators and reformers.

The Two-Edged Sword is a grim, gutsy, raw in-your-face first-hand account of what it was like to be Black and work as an undercover agent for the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (now called the DEA), and United States Secret Service from 1961-1990-some of the toughest years in this country's history of Civil Rights.

Tucker's life story reads like a best-selling 007 whodunit, more fiction than fact-yet all of it really happened.
