In 1958, Patricia Bays Haroski filed her petition for National Boss’s Day with the U.S. Department of Commerce. An employee at State Farm Insurance in Chicago, Haroski felt that bosses deserved recognition for their hard work and dedication. Of course, her father was her boss, which may have influenced her admiration. Still, four years later Illinois governor Otto Kerner signed the declaration to make the day official, on the proposed date of October 16 – which was the birthday of Haroski’s father.
