Pseudo-Isidore's social security number

When Eric and I visited the Beinecke library yesterday to do research in the Pseudo-Isidore manuscript, we had to sign a paper before we were allowed to look at the manuscript. We had to guarantee that we would not divulge any social security numbers that we might find in the material we were working on! Wouldn't that have been wonderful, if we had found Pseudo-Isidore's social security number, and thus been able to identify him securely. Scholars have been debating for 200 years who he might have been!
