Sheets, Additions and Corrections to the Dictionary of Occupational Titles. Memo of Richard C. Brockway


Beginning in 1939, the United States Employment Service issued a multivolume Dictionary of Occupational Titles for use in public employment offices and related vocational services. A revised edition would be published by the Bureau of Manpower Utilization during World War II, with subsequent revisions by the U.S. Employment Service. Revisions of job descriptions appeared between published volumes. These typed sheets give revisions to the dictionary supplied by the U.S. Social Security Board to the states. The sheets were issued to New York state administrators by Richard C. Brockway, Director of the Division of Placement and Unemployment Insurance of the New York State Employment Service, on October 4, 1941.
