Notes:
The Conservation and Research Center of the National Zoological Park, located in Front Royal, Virginia, was established in 1975 to encourage development of all aspects of animal sciences. It trains wildlife biologists from developing countries, and breeds, houses, and conducts research on a range of endangered species. Prior to being transferred to the Smithsonian, the property served as a United States Army Cavalry Remount Station, a facility for prisoners of war during World War II, and a United States Department of Agriculture cattle station.
Summary:
In May of 2000, as part of the 25th anniversary of the Conservation and Research Center, two long-time staff members, Maxie Cameron and George North, were interviewed about the history of the CRC. Both interviewees, who served on the facilities staff, provided historical background on the CRC property before it was transferred to the Smithsonian and in the years since.
