Case Study
The article describes the case of Camp S-72, Company 270 of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The Delmar Grouse Camp, 1933-1936, was a typical CCC operation, administered by a U.S. Army Reserve officer and 200 enrollees comprising CCC Company 270. Enrollees earned $30 per month, $25 of which was sent home to the enrollee's family. The chief purpose of Camp S-72 was to convert an abandoned fruit farm into a game farm for the propagation of upland game birds and waterfowl.
