Description

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) established Camp SP-10 in Strawberry Canyon in the hills behind the main campus of the University of California, Berkeley.  

Camp SP-10 was home to CCC Company 751 from October 5, 1933 to May 31, 1934. H.C. Merrick was the Commanding Officer. This was an integrated CCC camp, based on photographs of the enrollees.

It is believed that the camp was at current location of the parking lot across from the university botanical garden.

    I have some PDF scans of my Grandfather’s discharge papers from the CCC. One showing this photograph of Strawberry Canyon. Also a record of service for the CCC showing his timeline. Would you be interested in these? If so how should I send them
