JCRS, xxxx Colfax-Spivac-Colo #general

Robert Fraser asked what "JCRS, xxxx Colfax-Spivac-Colo" on a US Social Security
form could mean.

That's probably the Jewish Consumptives' Relief Society on Colfax Avenue, once run
by Dr. Charles Spivak. According to an article in the Rocky Mountain News (see link
below), "Some maps of the area have a little dot near Colfax and Kendall that says
'Spivak, Colo.'"
