SAMUEL BLACK (AGE 54) - U.S. DRAFT REGISTRATION - BRONX - APRIL 25, 1942
- In April 1942, U.S. men between the ages of 45 and 64 were required to register for the draft.
- Name: Sam Black (not Samuel).
- The place of residence (595 E. 167 St., Bronx) is the same address where Sam and Anna were living at the time of the 1940 census.)
- Place of birth: Balta, Russia. (Balta is in present-day Ukraine, which when Samuel Black lived there was part of the Russian Empire.)
- Employer's name and address: Steber and Sons, 39 W. 29th St. New York (See this address today in Google Maps.). (This is different from Sam's employer six years earlier, as recorded on his 1936 application for a social security number; at that time it was Trucraft Cravat at 10 West 33rd. St.)
- Other obvious physical characteristics that will aid in identification: scar on back of neck. (This confirms the translation of his 1904 or 1905 Ukrainian passport, which appears to mention a scar on his neck.)
