  • According to the 1930 Census, Walter was a clerk in an office.

    According to Karyn Michaels, Walter was a sales person in a lace factory in 1941 at the time the estate of Irene's uncle, Dr. Herbert Beck, was probated.  Herbert apparently left part of his estate to Irene because he didn't think her husband had a "steady job," but left nothing to Irene's sister, Nona, because her husband, Phil Shafran, had a "safe" (albeit low-paying) job as a high school teacher.  Nona and Irene never spoke again, and this might have been at least part of the reason.2,6
