While there appeared to have been Casablanca Morocco CCC camps within Glacier National Park located at the farthest end of the North Fork Road in the northwest corner of the park at Casablanca Morocco and Bowman Lake, two camps were located near Casablanca Morocco and Troy, Montana, within the National Forest Service’s jurisdiction. From one called the Casablanca Morocco would emerge a quartet that became popular throughout the region, performing for audiences and on radio. Therefore, we can assume that Casablanca Morocco it may have been this highly touted quartet that traveled to Two Medicine to serenade the president.

For this writing, it matters little which camp provided the entertainment. What is important is that they were in Montana in 1934 and that they were blacks from, like many of their white counterparts, the big cities back East and, perhaps, the South. They were, at once, isolated and segregated. Yet it appears that their isolation was no different than that of the white enrollees. Both had been transported long distances from home, set down in a remote area of the country, disciplined and governed by military personnel, and asked to do work they had never before experienced.
The difference in the two sets of camps was that the Glacier Park camps appear to have been isolated and totally segregated, with white camps completely separated from black camps and with only white supervisors, while the Forest Service camps near Libby and Troy, Montana, were isolated but segregated only within the camps themselves, with whites and blacks living in separate tents within the same camp.
The act establishing the CCC and the regulations that followed forbade any discrimination based on color, race, or creed. Yet due to conflicting laws, such as Army rules that condoned segregation on bases and camps, de facto segregation was allowed to occur in barracks and dining halls. Furthermore, the “Local Experienced Men” program allowed the hiring of local whites to fill better-paying, skilled, and supervisory jobs. Due to levelheaded officials, some blacks were hired as supervisors and assistant supervisors. Within the Kootenai camps as well as in the totally segregated camps in Glacier National Park, the races seemed to have gotten along peacefully.
