University of Mississippi: Athletic Facilities Improvement – University MS

Description

At the University of Mississippi, “…funds from New Deal agencies were also used for improvements in the university’s athletic facilities. The baseball field was graded and enhanced and a new grandstand was added. The golf course was also enlarged and reconstructed, with new grass greens replacing the sand greens” (Sansing, 1999, p. 254).
