500 |a "Prior to 1914 there was little need for a passport in order to arrive or leave the United States. With the entry for the U.S. into World War I, it became apparent that the country must protect itself from foreign agents. As of 26 July 1917, passports were required. By the Act of May 22, 1918, foreigners wishing to leave the country were required to file an "Alien's Petition for Permission to Depart from the United States" As the war drew to a close many persons chose to return to their native land. For the fiscal year ending 30 June 1919, 10,730 applications were received at Philadelphia."--From introduction.
