My CCC History

[Laporte, PA: C.C.C. Camp S-95, 1936-7]. Quarto (27cm.); original black card wrappers printed silkscreen in yellow and white; [48]pp. & [23] blank leaves for photographs. Wrappers rather worn with several chips and closed tears, upper cover lettering partly effaced, all mounted photographs have been removed, else About Very Good. Yearbook issued by the CCC Jakersville Camp in Laporte, Pennsylvania, the text portion accomplished in manuscript throughout by Edward Berton of Charleroi, PA, during his tenure with the Corps from April to April, 1936-7. Berton appears to have been involved chiefly in construction done at Worlds End State Park, including constructing the parking lot and foot bridges, though he was also responsible for sweeping the barracks every Saturday, cracking rocks, and raking. Several leaves are devoted to "Autographs of My Buddies," and cartoons featuring headless CCC members to be completed with kodak portraits, though young Berton has instead filled them in with his own drawings. An interesting survival, though sadly lacking all of the original mounted photographs.
