This is a roster and photos of Company 522, Camp SP-3 of the Civilian Conservation Corps, Jasonville, Greene County, Indiana for 1933. It was scanned from a booklet, Pictorial Review, Civilian Conservation Corps, Indiana-Kentucky District, Company 522 SP-3 Jasonville, Indiana, which is in the possession of IGS member Deborah Loveless of Dugger, Indiana. Ms. Lovelessí great-uncle Ralph Martin was a member of this CCC camp, and IGS wishes to thank her for allowing us to copy this interesting and rare family heirloom.
The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was a New Deal employment program that operated from 1933 to 1942. The aim, besides work relief, was to promote tree planting, park construction, flood control, forest fire prevention, and similar environmental tasks. The United States and Indiana had numerous CCC companies. The unit members, called enrollees, were drawn from a wide area and were not necessarily from the county or state they were assigned to.
The Indiana State Library has a collection of camp newspapers for many of the CCC Companies that operated in the state of Indiana, as well as numerous photographs from that era. The National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis, which is part of the National Archives, has personnel files on all of the CCC members. Check their website for information on how to order them.
