The Civil Works Administration (CWA) started and the Works Progress Administration (WPA) completed a high school stadium in Rock Springs, Wyoming. The Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA) was likely also involved, given the timeline in the article below.
Casper Star-Tribune, Nov. 1935: “The folks in Rock Springs take a lot of pride in their new athletic field, and deservingly so. Started as a CWA project (as was Casper’s new stadium), the field was completed last year. It is a splendid asset to the community, and supplements the excellent high school athletic system of which Rock Springs is justly proud. Roosevelt field lies” to one side of the fine high school building, which numbers among the most modern and completely equipped.”
The location of the old high school in Rock Springs (and thus the field in question) is presently unknown to Living New Deal.
