Senator Magnuson responds to a constituent regarding the formation of a Youth Conservation Corps
Typed Letter Signed: "Warren G Magnuson". 1p. 8x10 United States Senate letterhead. Washington, D.C., 1959 August 31. To: Dr. G.M. Hawkins, Puyallup, Washington. In full: "Dear Dr. Hawkins: Thank you for your letter of August 26th, expressing your support for legislation to form a Youth conservation Corps. I agree with your thinking entirely, and co-sponsored Senator Humphrey's bill this session - S.812 - to establish such an organization. The bill passed the Senate about a week or so ago and it now goes to the House for action. Our measure would enlist volunteer boys from16 to 21 years of age for work in the national parks, national forest and wildlife refuges at basic pay of $60 per month. Considering the enormous public land holdings and the growing public demands upon national park facilities, this would not be `made work'. An efficiently administered program would increase the value of the parks and refuges in a most econ-omical way, at the same time affording exceptional oppor-tunitites for you men to learn useful skills and to turn out their own mental and physical development in a wholesome atmosphere. I think it would be helpful if you, and others who feel as you do, would write your Congressman, urging that he support the bill in the House. Kindest regards. Sincerely," Warren Magnuson (1905-1989), a Democrat, was first sent to congress by the people of Washington in 1937. After serving as Representative he was elected to the Senate in 1944 and served until 1981, becoming the most senior member of that body. Magnuson was instrumental in keeping supertankers out of the Puget Sound by attaching an amendment to a routine funding reauthorization bill. Normal mailing folds. Paperclip crease at upper left corner. Lightly creased at edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
