Usage conditions apply
This cream-colored punch card with dark blue printing is the statement of earnings and deductions for E. N. Sivowitch, issued by the General Services Administration. Elliot Norman Sivowitch was a specialist in television and radio history at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History for 40 years. The card, which dates from the early 1960s, was found among his files after his retirement in 2000. It is in excellent condition – never folded, spindled, or mutilated! His bi-weekly net pay after taxes and deductions was $122.75 (about $1,075 in 2018 dollars).
