CCC, Easy As 1-2-3

Last night, I watched the Civilian Conservation Corps episode of PBS's The American Experience. I've been interested in the CCC ever since I found out that my sole maternal uncle was a member. It was so good, I almost became a New Dealer. Now where's my "I Hate Von Mises to Pieces" t-shirt.

• A 1933 Time Magazine article introducing the newly-formed CCC, "Rizzo Goes to Work"

• John A. Salmond’s cornerstone biography of the CCC, The Civilian Conservation Corps:
A New Deal Case Study
from the National Park Service website
