Home Economics BuildingNational Archives Record Group 135-SAR
The Public Works Administration funded the construction of the Home Economics building at the Utah State University. The structure was built in 1935 and designed by Leslie Hodgson & Myrl McClenahan.
According to a USU Historical Buildings guide, “On October 18, 1933 the federal Public Works Administrator announced allotments in excess of ten million dollars for non-federal projects. As part of the allotment given to the state of Utah, was the sum of $325,000 to build the home economics and union building.”
