#9 in CCC in NJ

Hi folks, if your interest has been whetted for more on the Civilian Conservation Corps in New Jersey, there are several places you can go on the 'net for more; there are also books, video, and of course, the signage at the State Parks on the hikes.

The Farm Security Administration was responsible for literally thousands of wonderful photographs of New Jersey in the 1930's.  One photographer whose name I saw over and over was Arthur Rothstein.  You can find information about him as well.
