Cooking and Baking Class at Company 3801(C), Waco, Texas, October 1938

Although most of the 200 members in each camp had outdoor assignments at which they received on-the-job instruction in one or more trades, others were assigned to support services, including learning to prepare three meals a day for the entire camp. Mary Brooks, a WPA adult education teacher, is the instructor (far left).
