About the Crater Lake NP Oral History Series

 

Interviewer: Stephen R. Mark, Crater Lake National Park Historian

Interview Location and Date: At Earl Wall's residence in Jacksonville, Oregon, March 17, 1989

Transcription: Transcribed by Chris Prout, July 1997

Biographical Summary (from the interview introduction)

CCC enrollee 1934. I located Earl Wall through Larry Smith, who had been interviewed during the previous month for this series. Although his term of employment at Crater Lake was relatively short, Mr. Wall’s memory was sharp and he provided valuable insight into several parks projects undertaken during 1934. His account, along with several others in this series, should be read collectively to obtain some idea of life as a Civilian Conservation Corps enrollee during the depths of the Great Depression.  

The following transcription is brief, but supplemented by notes taken during a telephone conversation which preceded the interview.

Materials Associated with this interview on file at the Dick Brown library at Crater Lake National Park's Steel Visitor Center
