Historical Sketch Ohio-West Virginia District CCC (7.6MB)

This CCC District "annual" review was put together about late 1940. The narrative tells of the expansion of the Charleston District which fomerly in the thirties comprised only West Virginia and was known as the Charleston District to a more expanded, geographical management district to include parts of Ohio, Kentucy and all of West Virginia, all consolidated under one miltary command. It should be noted that Lt Col Taber, former CO of the old Charleton District, was retained as District Commander in 1940.

This page is from the CCC District newspaper, dated June, 1937. A main lead story is the opening of Cacapon State Park on July 1 that year. Anyone who knew Senator Jennings Randolph knew of his generosity and willingness to promote a good environmental effort and as a person who championed conservation. Randolph was a force in keeping the CCC alive as an agency. Here, in this article, he mentions the CCC boy he met and recognized him with reference in the Congressional Record. Many events in West Virginia were so preserved, thanks to his devotion to his native state.
