Brochure and Poster, 1933-1942

This nine-fold brochure doubled as a CCC recruitment poster and contained much valuable information for the potential enrolleeā€”inception and organization of the CCC, qualifications of applicants, salary and living conditions. Similarly, it communicated that the program would benefit each enrollee "to build his self-respect, his mind, and his body, so that he will be better equipped to seize opportunities and to make his way in the world." The brochure continued, "All this is possible because his Government, striving to make him self-reliant and independent, offers him employment." In spite of such lofty sentiments, during the early years the most popular attraction of the CCC was an enrollee's ability to earn a salary and to receive free room and board.
