Stephenville, Texas Historical Events



1935, April 25
My father, Percy Brady Wallace, joined the Civilian Conservation Corp or the CCC's. He has passed away but I have a postcard he wrote while at Cache in 1935. He was writing to his father in Stephenville, Texas.
April 25, 1935
Dear Dad:
Received your card today, sure glad to hear from you. How is everyone at Stephenville getting along by this time? I went to the Easter Pageant last Sunday and saw Mildred over there but I didn't get to talk to her very long. There were 81,000 people there, I mean that was the largest bunch of people I ever saw in my life. I think I will go home this week-end because there is a lot of talk about us moving to Colorado in a few days. Gosh, I've really been working the last few days because we got in a bunch of new men and I had to help enroll them. We really got a good rain up here a few days ago and quite a bit of hail also. Did you make it o.k. going to Ft. Worth to Stephenville? Well, I don't know anything new so answer real soon.
With Love, Percy

My father, Percy, was nineteen when he typed this card to his father. Evidently he joined the CCC's after graduating from high school in Frederick, Oklahoma in 1934 and served for two years in the CCC's. The Company 812 was sent to Colorado by train. I have manyphotos he took during those two years. There were probably lots of young men from around the Cache area who were in the Civilian Conservation Corp. Maybe this would interest those still living or their children.
