The Connecticut Society of Genealogists, Inc. presents
“The 90th Anniversary of the Civilian Conservation Corps Camps and Its Work in CT” with Marty Podskoch
The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) began on March 31, 1933, under President Roosevelt’s “New Deal” to relieve the poverty and unemployment of the Depression. CCC camps were set up in a few Connecticut towns, state parks, & forests. Workers built trails, roads, campsites, & dams, stocked fish, built & maintained fire tower observer’s cabins & telephone lines, fought fires, & planted millions of trees. The CCC disbanded in 1942 due to the need for men in WW II.
Marty Podskoch is a retired teacher and the author of 11 books. Marty and his wife, Lynn raised their three children in an old farmhouse on the West Branch of the Delaware River in Delhi, New York where he taught 7th grade reading. He and his wife now live on Lake Pocotopaug in East Hampton, Connecticut. He is presently gathering information on the CCC camps in Vermont and Massachusetts for future books. Podskoch is keenly interested in meeting individuals who may have CCC stories and photos to contribute to his next book. Those that have information should contact him at 860-267-2442 or firstname.lastname@example.org
