Abstract:
During the early days of his administration, Franklin Delano Roosevelt established the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) to protect and enhance the nation's natural resources and speed economic recovery. He designed the agency to use unemployed young men and World War I veterans on a multitude of conservation projects. In Arizona, as the second largest funded federal program (behind the Bureau of Reclamation), the CCC significantly impacted the state in many ways. Socially, the corps reinforced American values among one segment of the population while introducing the same values to Native American peoples. Environmentally, the CCC programs altered Arizona's land use. When prosperity returned, the state's economy was more diversified and better prepared for the demands of World War II. From 1933 to 1942, the CCC not only played a vital role in transforming Arizona's economy and society but also provided a boost into the modern era.
