Arizona State University Development – Tempe AZ

Description

The Public Works Administration (PWA) funded the construction of several new facilities at the Arizona State Teachers College in Tempe – today’s Arizona State University. The New Deal improved many college campuses, including the University of Arizona in Tucson and Phoenix College.  Teachers’ Colleges were often targetted.

The building shown here is probably the back of West Hall, now covered by other buildings and the reception is surely in the lounge of West Hall.

Known buildings have their own project pages.  Matthews Hall appears to be New Deal, but it is not certain.  More information regarding the location and status of all New Deal projects on the ASU campus is needed.
