Notes:
New Deal era program, created in 1933 to relieve unemployment by providing national conservation work for young, unmarried men. Projects included planting trees, bulding flood barriers, combating forest fires, maintaining forest roads and trails, and building recreational facilities in U.S. parks. In 1942, with the Great Depression over and America involved in World War II, the CCC had outlived its usefulness and was abolished.
Summary:
Photographic materials, including loose photos, slides, snapshots, group photos, panoramic photos, and albums and binders of photographs; printed materials, including newspapers published by individual companies, camps and districts, and the national CCC newspaper, "Happy Days"; materials documenting each camp, including camp histories, personal memoirs, blueprints of camps and projects worked on; the papers of C.E. Ward, Educational Director of the CCC's 3rd Corps, which document the planning and implementation of educational activities in that region; miscellaneous materials, including camp rosters, cartoons, menus, poems, pamphlets, booklets, magazines, manuals, enrollee discharge papers, work logs, and sheet music; and other more recent materials such as research papers, books on the CCC, selected audiotape and video interviews with some of the alumni; and other miscellaneous items. 2011 addendum includes photographs and miscellaneous documents.
