Exterior detail of McGilvrey Hall
The Public Works Administration funded the construction of the Science classroom building for Kent State University.
“A federal grant, coupled with a $650,000 appropriation from the state, led to approval of plans for a new science building in 1938.”
Personal knowledge. My father taught in that building 1944-1959.
Bronze plaque in the building crediting the Works Progress Administration.
