I thought the Peace Corps was during World War II. Is that not correct? If not, when did it actually begin?

I did some research and Camp William James was CCC Volunteer Service experiment in 1940 supported by Roosevelt. It emphasized 'Democratic' diversity, much like the Peace Corps does today. You can find more information at The James F. Justin CCC Museum.
