In 1937 representatives of the Direct Advertising Company of Baton Rouge Louisiana visited the 102 Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camps in Missouri, Kansas, South Dakota and Nebraska. At each location they photographed all the young enrollees and as well as their supervisors and even some of their work projects. The result was two large annuals with many photos and thousands of names and even many of their hometowns. Today these official annuals are extremely rare and owned by just a few archives across the country. CCC historian Robert W. "Bob" Audretsch combed through the two annuals to compile this list of 15,639 enrollee names. And this list includes the names of 935 African American enrollees. The CCC went on to become the most popular of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal programs. Ultimately over three million men participated and many went on to serve in the U.S. armed forces in World War II. This book is a gold mine for those who had ancestors who served in the CCC in those four states.
