Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Records

Persons researching the Civilian Conservation Corps may want to visit the National Association of the Civilian Conservation Corps Alumni web site; of particular interest to researchers is an article aboutresearching CCC Records. The article contains the following advice for obtaining CCC personnel files:

“All personnel files are still held by the federal government. The enrollee or the enrollee’s next of kin may request discharge papers. Discharge papers are the best source to find the company and camps the enrollee was assigned to (see address below).

Other information, including camp and company reports, reside in the National Archives. To date these items are not indexed, but are available for study at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.

Request discharge papers at

National Archives and Records Administration (NARA)

National Personnel Records Center

Civilian Personnel Records 111 Winnebago Street

St. Louis, MO 63118”

The web site also maintains a list of all CCC Camps across the country, including camps in Missouri, and NACCCA maintains a CCC museum at Jefferson Barracks County Park St. Louis.

The Local History and Genealogy Department maintains an Information File about the CCC entitled “Works Progress Administration”, and a book, “Roosevelt’s forest army: a history of the Civilian Conservation Corps, 1933-1942”, may be found in the library catalog.
