Athletic Field – Hudson MA


Works Progress Administration (W.P.A.) labor constructed an athletic field in Hudson. WPA Bulletin:

The town of Hudson recently dedicated its new WPA Athletic Field during ceremonies featured by a night football game between the Hudson and Methuen High School teams. Hudson, rated the underdog, showed its appreciation of the new athletic plant by trouncing its opponent 14 to and the gathering of several thousand spectators who filled the WPA-built stands were most enthusiastic. Carl Rogers, Executive Assistant to Administrator McDonough, and Harry V. Madden, Chairman of the Hudson Board of Selectmen, were speakers during the exercises. Flagpoles at the eastern and western ends of the field were dedicated to two former Hudson athletes, Leo McGrath and Louis Cesario.

The location of the field is unknown to Living New Deal.
