The Civilian Conservation Corps in Missouri State Parks: A Lasting Legacy

During the Great Depression of the 1930s, with unemployment approaching 25 percent, masses of people were out of work and families were suffering. To address the underlying economic problems, President Franklin D. Roosevelt created a variety of government relief programs. Just 37 days after he signed the Emergency Conservation Work Act of 1933 the federal government recruited 250,000 men between the ages of 18 and 25, placed them in Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camps and began work on an assortment of construction and conservation projects. Within one year, Missouri had more than 4,000 men working in the state parks system. The rustic style of architecture that was the hallmark of the CCC’s park development projects is still the standard in state parks and many of their structures remain in use today. John Cunning, director of Resource Management and Interpretation Programs for Missouri State Parks, will highlight the work of the CCC in the state and explore the legacy left by these young men.

John Dougherty participated in every notable aspect of life on the western frontier and made significant contributions to the fur trade of the upper Missouri River Valley. He was an interpreter and natural historian on the first federally sponsored scientific expedition to the interior of the continent and facilitated the U.S. Army’s reach up the Missouri River to establish the remote outposts of Martin’s Cantonment in 1818, Fort Atkinson in 1819 and then Fort Leavenworth in 1827. Dougherty was later appointed Indian agent for the tribes of the upper Missouri River and served as a Whig Party congressman from Clay County in the 1840 Missouri state legislature. He established the town of Iatan on the Missouri River, in modern day Platte County, to facilitate westward expansion and, in company with Robert Campbell, was a successful trader along the Oregon Trail.
