Overview

Sypolt has compiled the first comprehensive national bibliography since 1943 of the Civilian Conservation Corps— of which he himself is a former member. Over 2,000 sources are meticulously cited, making this work an essential one-stop reference guide for those interested in learning more about the institution which has, since its humble 1933 inception, provided jobs for many unemployed youth, planted billions of trees, built many miles of trails, and created numerous pavilions, picnic areas, lakes, and dams across America.

Practical sub-divisions within the book aid in making research efficient for the reader, so that he or she may look up sources directly pertaining to his or her interest— whether that be the role of minorities in the Corps or seeing what has been written about CCC Camp Libraries— instead of having to wade through countless irrelevant works. Civilian Conservation Corps spans more than just the traditional sources of information; incorporated into this research guide are all types of literature, training guides, and other media, including: Films; Photographs; Maps; Internet Resources; Oral Histories; Museums. The author's primary purpose in compiling this edition is to direct scholars, researchers, federal and state parks, forests, and preservation personnel and historic preservationists in their research and to point them in the direction of the vast literature pertaining to the topic.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) operated from 1933 to 1942, but its legacy endures in our state and national parks and forests. Sypolt's comprehensive listing of nearly twenty-two hundred items indentifies books, articles, theses, government publications, films, and maps, along with the locations of photograph and oral history collections and CCC museums….Essential for researchers interested in the New Deal era or United States conservation history." - Reference & User Services Quarterly
