University of Maryland
The PWA, in addition to the WPA, was involved in building the University of Maryland campus. From the United States Community Improvement Appraisal:
“The University of Maryland has been the beneficiary of funds furnished by the United States Government through the Public Works Administration in connection with the construction of a new Women’s Dormitory and an Arts and Science Building at College Park, the remodeling of a Dairy Manufacturing Building at College Park, and the reconstruction and equipping of tho old University Hospital in Baltimore for use as a Dispensary.
Without the financial assistance given by the Federal Government in connection with this project, the University would have been unable to have constructed buildings as large and well equipped as it has done. The new facilities have relieved to a considerable extent the University’s urgent need for space for the conduct of its operation.”
