This posthumously published account was first written by Witte from his diary in 1936 following his work at the Committee on Economic Security. It thus contains a first-hand account of the day-to-day operation of the committee and the formulation of the Social Security Act. It was written for the files of the Social Science Research Council but not published until after his death.
