DCR maintains a specialized collection of Massachusetts-related CCC materials including alumni artifacts, uniforms, equipment, maps, plans, photographs, printed documents, oral and video histories and staff memoirs.  The collection was begun in 1974 by state parks staff, from parks and donors all across the Commonwealth with the purpose of preserving the CCC legacy.

 

The CCC archival collection is available to the public and DCR staff for research, exhibit development, interpretive programming, or information on CCC work projects, selected alumni, camps or companies.

Original documents, photographs, printed matter, maps, and plans are held within DCR’s Archives Storage Office, Danvers, MA. A reference history collection based on the CCC Archives is maintained at the Mount Greylock State Reservation Visitor Center, Lanesborough, MA. The CCC reference collection is useful for CCC camp histories in Massachusetts, and general history of the CCC.
