The WPA allocated $18,689 for “Dornblaser athletic field improvement” at the University of Montana in Missoula. The stadium housed Montana Grizzlies football home games, and is not to be confused with the newer recreation center that bears the same name.
According to Wikipedia, the site of ‘old’ Dornblaser Field “is now the location of the Mansfield Library.”
