Each primary CCC camp had its own newspaper. At the Civilian Conservation Corps Museum of South Dakota, digitizing and reproducing those newspapers is but one of the ongoing projects. The enrollee roster project is also ongoing.
Some 30,000+ men served in the Civilian Conservation Corps in South Dakota during the years of 1933 – 1942. Compiling the names of these men began several years ago and the CCC Museum in Hill City reprints the roster periodically so that visitors can check to see if familiar names have been included.
The camp newspapers list events, accomplishments, and other activities of the respective camp. From time to time these newspapers list men being discharged and those that are newly enrolled. We do a quick cross check to see if names from the newspapers are included in the roster. Most times they are.
The Park Creek Crier newspaper, April 1941, was the newspaper of Company 2759. This company was primarily a veteran's company. Along with the interesting writing was a list of new enrollees. The following were not found among the names listed in the South Dakota roster but will be added soon: Milton G. Kennedy, James H. Lee, Jesse F. Edwards, William G. Faulkner, Si Ho Hahn, Mark Wells, Robert F. Evans, Everett P. Wolf, Edward C. Baker, Ira S. Tyler.
