Another great program tomorrow from our National Archives Noon Lectures! From 1933 to 1942, more than three million men found employment in the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). Ren Davis and Helen Davis, authors of “Our Mark on This Land: A Guide to the Legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps in America’s Parks,” discuss this decade and the CCC projects that restored and enhanced America’s natural resources.
A book signing will follow the program. Enter the National Archives building through the Special Events doors on Constitution Avenue.
