Russell Hall, Connors State College, Warner, OKPhoto: Charles Swaney
The Federal Emergency Administration of Public Works (a.k.a. Public Works Administration) provided funding toward the construction of Russell Hall at Connors State College in Warner, Oklahoma.
The 2-story structure houses a dormitory and is designed in Georgian Style. It is located on the east side of the Connors State campus, a two-year community school. Given the time of its construction and operation, the dormitory possibly housed some of the students receiving flight training from 1942, during WWII, with actual flying at Hatbox field about 15 miles north in southern Muskogee. Russell Hall continues to be utilized as a dormitory.
