CCC Camp Lists

Understanding the content of the camp list pages.  
Please read the information below.  

As you begin your CCC research, it is important to get the feel for the fast paced movement of CCC/military companies across the nation.  A camp was identified by several different methods  through the use of different nick-names, company numbers and agencies identifications.  The movement of CCC camps and their identifiers was flexible and fluid.

Camp Numbering Systems 

Numbering system:  The third digit from the right identified the Corps area of origination.  

Sometimes after a Company was moved to another Corps Area it would have its "Original number" changed. A case in point was Company 1302 (Third Corps Area).   After it was transferred from Wyoming (Eighth Corps Area) to Bremerton, Washington (Ninth Corps Area) the Company Number was changed to 2911.

Wayman and Ann Wells

Volunteers  make a lasting contribution
to CCC Research 

Volunteers, Wayman and Ann Wells, researched and compiled the listing of CCC camps and donated the complete set to the NACCCA/CCC Legacy library. This listing represents countless hours of very difficult work.

A proud member of Roosevelt's tree army, Wayman was a tireless, dedicated volunteer worker and recruiter for the NACCCA. He served a two-year term as the North Central Regional Director. He also served 12 years as volunteer assistant treasurer of the national organization. But more significant, he led the work crew, furnished most of the tools, made the NACCCA sign in front of headquarters and gave personal financial support in rehabbing the current Headquarters and Museum when the NACCCA moved from Virginia to Jefferson Barracks in St. Louis. After headquarters was occupied, Wayman headed the Outreach Program for new members.

In 1995 Wayman and Ann received the NACCCA Hall of Fame Award by the Board of Directors and in 1997 Wayman received the Hall of Fame Award for the second time. Wayman and Ann were also named Kentucky Colonels for their efforts on behalf of the NACCCA in Kentucky.

An active member of Arch Chapter 12, St. Louis he served as President, Vice President and Secretary of that group. Wayman passed away on 14 December 1997 and the work  Wayman and Ann began in 1990 to transcribe the records were completed in 1998 by Ann.
