Description

In 1934, East Texas State Teachers College (now Texas A&M University–Commerce) requested $123,000 from the Public Works Administration (PWA) to build a dormitory for male students. A few months later, the PWA approved $106,000 for the project. The college added $10,000 and the groundbreaking occurred in July 1935. The dorm opened a year later.

The university had the building demolished in February 2008.
