Letter from A.E. Bosley in support of a social security program, March 5, 1935

As Congress worked to create a viable plan for Social Security, people around the country sent letters offering their opinions and advice. This one, from A.E. Bosley of Akron, Ohio, to Congressman Dow Harter, recommends the use of permanent registered identification numbers to track workers’ lifetime earnings and contributions.
