Ethel and Julius Rosenberg were executed in June 1953 as “atom spies”. They were the only Americans executed for espionage during the Cold War. In the novel fictional characters Ed and Millie Stein were neighbors of the Rosenberg’s. Ethel, Julius, and Ed were members of the Communist party.

The idea of Father’s Day was publicly supported by President Calvin Coolidge in 1924, but was not presidentially proclaimed until 1966. It was assured of annual recognition by
