CARTC Camp McQuaide

(S.l.): (S.n.), [1942]. Black and white illustrations, map drawings. Wrappers. Twenty-fourmo. 31 pages. Fine condition.

This was a handbook for newly arrived recruits at Camp McQuaide during World War II. Camp McQuaide was on the coast of the Monterey Bay just west of Watsonville, California, and home to the Coast Artillery Replacement Training Center from 1942-1943.

This handbook contains information on the facilities and activities at the post as well as a section on "Amusements in Town." There is also a small pictorial map of the Monterey Bay Region and a centerfold map of the camp itself. A scarce handbook.

The site of Camp McQuaide has been occupied by a boarding school since 1949. Monterey Bay Academy is an accredited co-educational high school operated by the Seventh-Day Adventist Church.
