My dad is in the photo below on the scaffolding on the dam. I was happy to find him in one of the construction photos. I also found the photo which included the young African American man below interesting. My impression before seeing this photo was that the CCCs were mostly if not all segregated. I did a bit of quick research and discovered that the CCCs were integrated at the beginning, but that changed in the later years of the program. Obviously, I don't know what relationship the young man below had with the other enrollees in his camp but he looks as if he is included in the photo as part of a group of buddies. I'd like to think that was the case.
It's time to say goodbye to Campton and my time with the CCCs. Again, if you recognized anyone in any of the photos that I've posted over the last three months I'd love to hear from you. I love to add a name to a face!
