Locale: Western and Central Pennsylvania Fees/Travel Expenses: Willing to travel but it the distance is more than 100 miles from Pittsburgh, PA would appreciate a honorarium.
High School and college Professor, retired. As a campground host at Twin Lakes and Loleta recreational areas on the Allegheny National Forrest from 1978-1992, I became exposed to many CCC alumni who returned to their forest home. As a result I became fully entrenched in researching CCC history for the past 35 years.
ACCOMPLISHMENTS: I have established the Marie and Mike Schultz CCC Collection at the University of Pittsburgh/Bradford, PA. campus. The collection is located at the Hanley Library. The collection is a great place for research on the CCC as it houses over 1000 pictures, 32 video interviews with CCC vets, 50 books on the CCC, a large holding of CCC memorabilia, CCC camp newspapers (chiefly from PA camps) and countless articles and papers dealing with the CCC. In addition, there are a number of academic papers regarding the CCC in Western Pennsylvania. Author of two books on the CCC: A novel IN THE SHADOW OF THE TREES and one historical narrative THE CCC IN THE ALLEGHENY NATIONAL FOREST.Numerous articles on the CCC have been written on the CCC many of which have been published in the CCC Legacy Journal. My research lead to the production of a sixty-minute CCC documentary on the CCC in Pennsylvania that has played on PBS.
