Description

In 1937, the Works Progress Administration (WPA) built additions to the field house, as well as a radio tower, at the US Naval Research Laboratory.  It is unknown to us if those are still standing.

The Naval Research Laboratory has been a major research facility for the US Navy and military since it was founded at the instigation of Thomas Edison in 1923. It is located along the Potomac River at the southern tip of the District of Columbia.
