Photographic Album Documenting the Activities of Civilian Conservation Corps Co. 297, Kanona, NY and Heppner, OR

C.C.C. Company 297 moved from Kanona, New York to Heppner, Oregon in late 1936. The images in this album document the cross-country move in detail, including way-stops in Denver and Boone, Colorado. Includes many captioned of the lads at work, laying dams and bridges, cutting wood, preparing meals, etc. A tipped-in meal coupon is issued to one "Joseph Accurie" (likely Accurio), whom we speculate was the compiler of the album. An unusually well-conceived and captioned CCC scrapbook, documenting a significant piece of a single company's history; substantially complete and in excellent condition. Ca. 1937. 179 images (5 missing), ranging in dimension from 2-1/2" x 2" to 3-1/2" x 5-1/2". Artfully arranged and almost fully captioned in white ink, with names of subjects and locations; a few items dated 1937 & 1938.
