New Mexico State University: Milton Hall – Las Cruces NM

Description

"During the 1930s, construction on campus included Dove Hall in 1936, a wing added to Goddard Hall in 1937, and Williams Hall. This work was supported in part by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) a federal New Deal program. This financial support lasted into the early 1940s with the construction of Rhodes and Garrett Halls, Milton Hall, a building for the Dairy Department (now encompassed by Neale Hall), the Regulatory Building (later incorporated into Science Hall), and the Biology Annex. WPA funds were also used to install sidewalks around The Horseshoe and to paint the murals in both Young and Foster Hall."
