In 1937, Ross Dickinson completed a four-panel mural at San Pedro High School in San Pedro, CA. He received funding from the Federal Art Project (FAP).
Dickinson’s other New Deal works—all in Los Angeles, CA—include two murals, “A Valley in California” and “Mankind’s Achievements” (1934), at George Washington Preparatory High School; a pair of tile mosaics (1936) at Thomas Starr King Middle School; and a mural, “History of the Recorded Word” (1937), at Thomas Jefferson High School.
Also located at San Pedro High School is a series of murals by FAP artist Tyrone Comfort. Titled “Industrial Life in San Pedro,” these murals are located in the school library.
