Men of CCC Camp Kephart Prong, CCC Company 411 in front of the Officer's quarters

Including the Kephart CCC camp, between 1933 an 1942, 22 camps were active in the park.

   In the photo, I am second from the left, front row (the best-looking one!). My shirt says "411 CCC". I was the leader of 10 boys. Ben Cannon is the man beside me who also has on a shirt that says "411 CCC". Next to Ben is Stafford Clark, also from Newland, NC. I recommended him and got him into the CCC's. He lived across the hill from me in Newland. He wore size 13 shoes, size 6 hat, and 32 waist pants. On the back row, second from the left is "Champ" Rice.
