Camp Rabideau: CCC camp gets old papers

Email

A chance meeting at a Twin Cities estate sale has led to the donation of a collection of early camp papers published at Camp Rabideau, the Civilian Conservation Corps camp southeast of Blackduck.

The papers were presented by Carol Rice, whose father, Daryle, was one of the young men stationed at the camp and was also the artist whose drawings appeared each week on the paper's mimeographed front page.
