Success Story!

Hi, Donna!

After your great presentation at our TCGS meeting on the 9th about the WPA and CCC, I found a distant relative (wife of a great aunt’s son) who worked for the WPA for 2 years starting at her age 19 in 1936 helping to build the Timberline Lodge in Oregon. Her name at that time before she got married was Marjorie Elizabeth Holtham. My Dad grew up with her husband’s older half-brother, even though we never met Marjorie. Here is a link to her FindAGrave memorial where I found the information about her WPA work in the newspaper death notice:
