PROGRAM
"CIVILIAN CONSERVATIONS CORPS IN COLORADO:
THE WORK THEY DID and a PRIMER ON USING THEIR RECORDS FOR FAMILY HISTORY"
Presented by Bob Audretsch
This will include dozens of photographs from that era never shown publicly before that I obtained from archives as far away as Washington, D.C. There will be a table of CCC artifacts that people are welcome to look over and handle.
 
Robert W. “Bob” Audretsch retired as a National Park Service ranger at Grand Canyon in 2009 after nearly 20 years of service. Since then, he has devoted himself full time to research and writing about the Civilian Conservations Corps (CCC). Bob grew up in Detroit, Michigan, and attended Wayne State University where he received a BA in history and a MS in library science.
Prior to his work as a ranger, he was a librarian in Michigan, Ohio, and Colorado. He has written numerous articles in the fields of library science, sports, and history.
