Letter about CCC &

WPA article

To the Editor,

While visiting Rushford recently, I was thrilled to read your article about the CCC and WPA (September 22, 2003). My father, William Marker taught drafting to some of the men at Lanesboro. I recall visiting with him there as a pre-teen child. His pay was $44/month. He was a graduate of Stout Institute and taught high school classes at many schools in Minnesota. As for Fillmore County, he served as teacher of Manual Arts and did some coaching at Chatfield and Rushford.

I thought you might like to know that another important CCC project was the great reduction of barberry bushes. Why important? Barberry was the host plant for the infamous black stem wheat rust which was decimating midwest wheat crops. Erosion control was also part of their work. Most of those men are long-gone but their families must remember.
