The History of Camp Abbot

Author and historian Les Joslin will give an illustrated talk on Camp Abbot, a U.S. Army training center on the Deschutes River just a few miles south of the High Desert Museum. About 90,000 combat engineers trained at Camp Abbot in 1943 and 1944. This training, along with the 1943 Oregon Maneuvers headquartered at Camp Abbot that involved another 100,000 soldiers, had major effects on life in Central Oregon during the war.
