University of Michigan – Ann Arbor MI

Description

The University of Michigan, like numerous public universities around the country, received substantial financial assistance from federal Public Works Administration (PWA) during the Great Depression.

Several buildings were constructed on the university’s campus as a result of federal grants, including the Victor Vaughan Dormitory; East and West Quadrangles; Stockwell Hall; Kellogg Institute; and the University Health Service Building. Each of these structures is still in use today.
