  • He was a white male, not registered with the U.S. Employment Service and had not previously applied for a Social Security Account Number
  • He applied on 25 Nov 1936 and was granted Social Security Number 017-10-8784
  • There are two stray marks on the application: the number 212 near the upper right and 1-1 written near the bottom right.

Many Polish immigrants and their sons worked at American Steel and Wire in Worcester.  The jobs there did not require a lot of specialized training and paid poorly.  Immigrants were often grateful to have jobs, even if the work was hard and the wages low.  My grandfather, Michael Danko, also worked at American Steel and Wire.
