The Civilian Conservation Corps and the National Park Service, 1933-1942: An Administrative History.
Paige, John C.
The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) has been credited as one of Franklin D. Roosevelt's most successful efforts to conserve both the natural and human resources of the nation. This publication provides a review of the program and its impact on resource conservation, environmental management, and education. Chapters give accounts of: (1) the history of the CCC (tracing its origins, establishment, and termination); (2) the National Park Service role (explaining national and state park programs and co-operative planning elements); (3) National Park Service camps (describing programs and personnel training and education); (4) contributions of the CCC (identifying the major benefits of the program in the areas of resource conservation, park and recreational development, and natural and archaeological history finds); and (5) overall accomplishments, 1933-1942 (highlighting the benefits resulting from the program). Full page illustrations cover representative aspects of the program. Appendices contain legislative, management, and product related documents. (ML)
