This dinner plate fragment was recovered from a trash dump at Camp Falington, a Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camp in Crawford County. All CCC camps received their supplies, including this plate, from the United States Quartermaster Corps. The maker's mark on the underside of the plate has an open book picture with the manufacturer's name, and the date and place of manufacture: "The Bailey-Walker Vitrified China Bedford, Ohio 1938." The CCC was a work relief program begun in 1933 that employed young men on environment projects. The men of Company 788 were housed at the nearby camp until it closed in 1940.

Date: 1938-1940
