This "CCC" project is part of a larger one that will undoubtedly never be completed. Some 20,000 plus workers served in the Civilian Conservation Corp. Some of those workers spent time at Mount Rushmore and it is that fact that sparked the interest in the "New Deal" program initiated by FDR. The plan was to focus only on those that contributed, in some way, to the Memorial project. It has since grown to include all of the CCC camp locations and the entire roster of workers.

The resources for the project include many references and several individuals. As we continue the work (well we can hardly call it work) we will make note of those resources and individuals. Peggy Sanders must be mentioned. Her extensive work on the CCC, her book(s) and her contribution to the Museum in Hill City have been most important in reaching this point in our project.
