The 1930 US Census provides the first evidence of the Victors living together as a family in America. Between the years 1913 and 1921 Hyman was in Chicago while his wife Rose and their five daughters Feige, Ethel, Veilke, Hanna, and Rivke, were still in Russia.
Upon arriving in America, the girls’ names were anglicized. On the census, the five Yiddish-speaking single white females were recorded as:
Florence, 21, saleslady, ladies wear.
Ethel, 20, general office, furniture.
Valerie, 19, office, retail dry goods.
Doris, 17, saleslady, not employed.
Ruth, 16, no occupation.
Hyman Victor is listed as the head of household, a carpenter, not a veteran of the military, in possession of a radio, and paying a rent of $62 per month at 1312 South Harding Avenue. Rose is listed as having no trade and unemployed.
