Book News: The Library of Virginia and the CCC Newspaper Collection

The work of the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression has long interested me.

My book, “At a Place Called Buckingham,” Volume Two, contains a lengthy essay concerning the history of the CCC in Buckingham County, Virginia. “Spirit and Industry: Buckingham County and the Civilian Conservation Corps,” reveals that Buckingham was home to two camps: one African-American Corps, the other comprised of white men.

The Summer 2018 issue of Library of Virginia’s quarterly, Broadside, contains a detailed article about the newspapers published by the men of the CCC across Virginia.
