Standard Form 171

Also in this binder is my mom’s application to work for the Federal Government, which involved filling out “Standard Form 171.” In 1971, SF_171 required you to report whether you were “Mrs.” or “Miss,” your height and weight, and whether you were now, or within the last ten years had been, a member of the Communist Party, USA, or any subdivision of same.

    I was a casual/seasonal employee of NIH spanning two or three years, and my job description during that time changed from “Clerk Typist” to “Office Automation Operator.”

    Hardly the same thing, but my Frosh Interest Sheet at Caltech included height and weight (in ’86). Pretty sure that’s long gone.
