Chuck Knox joined the FBI in June of 1971 as Clerical Employee, and after 4 brief years with the FBI, he was promoted to a Special Agent, which is the role he held until retirement in January 2000.
While working in the New York office, he was assigned to work counterespionage/intelligence where he worked various cases regarding the Soviet Union, including the Solo Case in 1979. The Solo Case was the longest running Soviet Investigation in FBI history. Although he was made case agent for the Solo case in 1979, the case actually began in 1951 and was closed in 1985.
The Solo Case was the original reason for the MLK Investigation, which began in 1961. Knox was interviewed for the documentary, MLK/FBI, released in 2020 about the FBI surveillance on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The documentary won 5 awards of the 12 it was nominated for.
