Collection Overview


Ralph W. Baker Conservation Corps collection


Baker, Ralph W., creator


Include 3 albums (v.1-3) of young men on hiking excursions in Marin County, Calif. between 1929 and 1931. Some views of trail maintenance work are present, and some are identified as "SCC" related. 2 additional albums (v.4-5), compiled on binder leaves with typescript captions, document Baker's service with the Civilian Conservation Corps at Camp Board Corral (Washoe Co., Nevada), Hilt (Shasta Co., Calif.), Likely (Modoc Co., Calif.), and Glenburn (Shasta Co.) These albums include typescript reports on camp activities as well as photographs of regional landscapes, camps, and workers' activities. The town of Alturas, Calif., is also pictured. Some images and notes document petroglyphs in Washoe County. A sixth album documents Camp Stockton, a transient laborers' camp of the State Relief Administration of California.
