Digital Memories: Civilian Conservation Corps Anniversary

Special Collections and Archives at the University of Idaho Library announces a new installment in the Webpage "Digital Memories." Digital Memories focuses on historic artifacts, documents, photographs, and books from the holdings of Special Collections and Archives. This is a changing showcase of highlights from our collections.

In April 1933, the Civilian Conservation Corps was established as a New Deal program that changed the face of Idaho and brought thousands of eastern youths to Idaho's forests and prairies. The University of Idaho Library holds several examples of mimeographed camp newsletters.

"Digital Memories" can be accessed through the URL: http://www.lib.uidaho.edu/special-collections/. Previous editions include Senator Borah's bid for the presidency, Sir Walter Scott's Heart of the Midlothian, Idaho's non-laureate Poet, and the introduction of airplanes for fire spotting. Also at this site is information about Special Collections and its holdings, archival and manuscript descriptions and inventories, and a massive geographical guide to repositories of primary source materials. The latter now contains over 5000 entries from around the world.
