Texas State Parks and the CCC: The Legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps

By Cynthia Brandimarte; Angela Reed | Go to book overview

BIBLIOGR APHY

The most valuable sources for this book were the Texas State Parks Board Records and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department records housed at the Texas State Library and Archives Commission. The board records document the development and maintenance of the state park system in Texas by the Texas State Parks Board and the work of the board with the Civilian Conservation Corps, the Work Projects Administration, and other federal agencies at individual state parks and statewide. There are varied types of records that generally cover 1901–1963, with the bulk dating 1933–1949. TPWD records document the agency’s responsibility for the management and conservation of the state’s natural and cultural resources, provision of outdoor recreational opportunities, conservation education and outreach, and interpretation of cultural and historical resources. The varied record types cover 1963–1999 with a few earlier records. The history project files document the early years of the TPWD (1963–1975) and were especially helpful. Please consult www.tsl.state. tx.us for an online inventory of these catalogued collections, as well as the scans of the original CCC drawings.

The Historic Sites and Structures Program files include photocopied records from Record Group 79 from the National Archives and Records Administration, Denver, Colorado. Collected during 2004 and 2005 research trips to Denver, the files contain NPS records about Texas’ CCC parks. Program files also contain microfiche of available Texas CCC camp newspapers and microfilm of available Texas CCC camp newspapers and Happy Days, the national CCC newspaper.
