Where in the World is Evan?

Evan Kalish recently returned from New York, where the Living New Deal has catalogued more than 100 school buildings financed in part by the Public Works Administration. LND identified most of these buildings using PWA documents, newspaper articles, and other materials from the era. There are historical photos of more than 30 of these projects, including many scanned at the National Archives. These often-Colonial Revival-style schools are plentiful throughout the northeast, and Evan has photographed nearly two dozen of them in Upstate New York. Fortunately, Evan found that most of these buildings confirm their pedigree with a cornerstone or PWA plaque. Visit the site for more information about these projects.
