Description

Will Rogers Middle School, built in 1935, is almost certainly a New Deal project. The Public Works Administration (PWA) paid for the reconstruction of some 200 schools across Southern California in the wake of the Long Beach Earthquake of 1933.  

The Modern design of the school is typical of the New Deal era. The building also houses a 1939 mural by Olinka Hrdy.
