George Ferris Record

Title

George Ferris Record

Description

A letter from M. Schwartz, MD, stating that he does not believe that George Ferris is 16 years old. It is attached to another record, from the United States Department of Labor, Immigration Service, sent to Lawrence, Massachusetts, by acting commissioner Byron Hall on September 20, 1913. This states that George Kabalanx [likely a confusion with his father's name, Abalan Ferris Karam] was 16 years of age when he arrived in the United States, traveling to Lawrence to join his father. It indicates that he was literate and that his occupation was "shoemaker." A notation, handwritten in pencil at the bottom of this document, states that "the boy will be 17 his next birthday."
