Civilian Conservation Corps Photographs, mid 1930s

KC Manuscript Collection 252

ABSTRACT:
This is a collection of photographs from the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camp in Hampton, Tennessee.  The camp was Company 1456 C.C.C. F-6.  Images show workers in various group pictures (including one panoramic view measuring 8×28 inches), winter scenes, building projects, camp facilities, and a fire tower.  Although the men are unidentified, one of the people that worked in the camp was Ernest Glenn Crowell, an out-of-work general studies teacher.  Following his stint with the CCC, Crowell eventually taught school in Fayetteville, NC prior to spending a couple decades working for the postal service.  This camp was under Commanding Officer Captain H.E. Stout of the 321st Infantry.  H.C. Litton was Project Superintendent.  The large panoramic image was taken by a company out of Detroit called Spencer & Wyckoff.
