firstname.lastname@example.org --- I am a historian based in Las Cruces,, NM, and I am currently researching a project on Ft. Bliss TX, which is emphasizing military activity in World War II and the Cold War. The emphasis on my project is on construction that took place on Bliss' "Maneuver Areas", or for those familiar with the gargantuan 1.5 million acres that belong to the Post, the desert areas that belong to the Army - mostly in New Mexico. Apparently, the CCC in Arizona and New Mexico was under the supervision of the 1st Cavalry Division. There are two buildings that existed on Fort Bliss' remote camps (Camp Hueco and Camp Oro Grande) that I know about - these are on the rolls for 1943 as CCC buildings, according to the Army Corps of Engineers records - but I would like to know when these were built if possible and any other relevant information on the Fort Bliss connection to the CCC. Fort Bliss has modern records of such activity, but I have little local access to such records. This is something of National Register interest for those interested in that sort of subject (I know I am!). If anyone knows of some information on Fort Bliss and the CCC (I have found nothing in the local repositories in El Paso and Las Cruces), I would appreciate hearing from you. (posted 4/24/99)

MWelker207@aol.com --- I am the daughter of a former CCC participant, Adam Welker, in a CCC photo he was 17 years old in 1934. The photo was developed in Minneapolis, MN. Some of the photos that are in my Father's album are from Yellowstone National Park. I was wondering if there was any member who remembered him? Also I was also hoping I might find some more info on his place of service and maybe even his picture in one of the archives. (posted 1/18/00)

email@example.com --- In Ocean Springs, Mississippi (just eeast of Biloxi) there were apparently 2 CCC camps. One would have been just northeast of town on what is now known as "Old CCC Camp Road" and another would have been located on Brumbaugh road, adjacent to what would eventually become "Magnolia State Park" and then later be designated "Gulf Islands National Seashore." On this land are a few Beech trees. Were Beech trees commonly planted by members of the CCC? Is it possible that this camp was set up in order to begin clearing and establishing the park which would eventually grow to become the National Seashore? This land includes one of the few steep ravines in this otherwise topographically flat town. At the base of the 20 foot deep bank is a slowly flowing body of water. (Our family loves to debate whether it is a "ditch" or a small creek.) Point is, this ditch drains an area of about 200-300 acres of what is now residental neighborhoods. Is it possible that this ditch was dug by the CCC to drain the area for human habitation? Where could I get more info on this particular camp? (posted 4/21/00)

firstname.lastname@example.org --- I am inquiring about a pin that has an emblem that I wonder if it is a CCC pin. Triangular in shape, it has the 3 words "Restoration, Preservation, Training" on the outer ring and a snake(?) in green wrapped around a staff with a gold background. Does this sound familiar? Any help is appreciated. (posted 5/24/00)
HAVE A QUESTION OF YOUR OWN TO POST E-mail THE CURATOR AND I'LL PUT IT UP SOON
Civilian Conservation Corps Camp Papers A Search Engine for a microfilm database of Newspapers and newsletters published by members of the Civilian Conservation Corps, c. 1934 - 1942. The database contains over 5,000 titles, the entire collection has been filmed. The search engine alone will tell you much about CCC companies, searching by name of city will tell you what companies were there, company number will tell you where the company was and to some extent when. You can also apparrently order (buy) microfilm of the newsletters so you can take them to library and read or copy. I haven't bought yet but I have found newsletters from both of my Dad's camps. (HOWEVER IT IS NOW MANY MANY MONTHS SINCE I EMAILED THEM AND NO RESPONSE!) Check it out. A Page from the CRL Database, Use Back Key to Return.
