The Holman Field Administration Building at St. Paul Downtown Airport in St. Paul, Minnesota was constructed by the Works Progress Administration (WPA).
National Register of Historic Places Registration Form:
“The Holman Field Administration Building is significant under criterion C as one of the most accomplished works of Clarence Wesley Wigington, the first Black architect for the City of St. Paul. The building is also significant under criterion A as an important WPA project completed in cooperation with the City of St. Paul, and as well-preserved example of the Moderne style. Wigington’s career as an architect with the City spanned 34 years and during that time he designed many prominent public buildings that have had a lasting impact on the city landscape. Because his career spanned the New Deal years, many of those designs are associated with the Works Progress Administration.”
