Works Progress Administration

was built during the Great Depression with help from the federal government’s Works Progress Administration. The building was completed and the school opened just after Thanksgiving in 1936. Jeakins got her start working on WPA (Works Progress Administration) projects and as a Disney artist in the 1930s. Her fashion career began as a designer at I. Magnin's, where she was spotted by director Victor Fleming. Hired as a sketch artist for ''Joan of Arc (Joan of Arc (1948 film))'' (1948), Jeakins worked on the costumes along with Barbara Karinska and shared an Oscar (Academy Awards) with her. This was the first Oscar ever awarded for costumes. thumb right 150px "Fountain of the Winds", detail, New Orleans Lakefront Airport, 1930s (Image:AlfarezOwlgal1.jpg) The son of a sculptor, young Enrique spent some time in the army of Pancho Villa in the Mexican Revolution before coming to the United States. He studied with Lorado Taft in Chicago, Illinois in the 1920s, then from 1929 on lived in New Orleans, Louisiana. His sculptures and reliefs adorn many parks, buildings, and landmarks in New Orleans and south Louisiana. In a Works Progress Administration program, he created many sculptures for City Park (City Park (New Orleans)). As the Great Depression (Great Depression in the United States) started, unspent funds initially allocated for military construction were diverted into programs to stem the unemployment. Construction on the permanent facilities slowed, but in 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt allocated Works Progress Administration (WPA) funds for Fort McClellan. In the next three years, an estimated $1,785,000 in WPA funds was used for constructing new roads, an airfield, and additional permanent buildings. Included was a radio facility with a high-power transmitter (call letters WUR) for Morse-code (Morse code) communications, Most of the buildings were Spanish Colonial Revival architecture in style. * employment status * if at work, whether in private or non-emergency government work, or in public emergency work (WPA (Works Progress Administration), CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps), NYA (National Youth Administration), etc.) ** if in private or non-emergency government work, hours worked in week Background By the spring of 1937, production, profits, and wages had regained their 1929 levels. Unemployment remained high, but it was considerably lower than the 25% rate seen in 1933. In June 1937, some of Roosevelt's advisors urged spending cuts to balance the budget. WPA (Works Progress Administration) rolls were drastically cut and PWA (Public Works Administration) projects were slowed to a standstill. ''The Great Depression'', Robert Goldston, Fawcett Publications, 1968, page 228 The American economy took a sharp downturn in mid-1937, lasting for 13 months through most of 1938. Industrial production declined almost 30 percent and production of durable goods fell even faster. Facts & procedural history On April 28, 1936, the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia mailed a check (Cheque) for $24.20, drawn on the Treasurer of the United States, to Clair Barner. The check was Barner's paycheck from the Works Progress Administration (WPA). Barner never received the check, which was stolen by an unknown party. The thief forged Barner's signature (forgery) and cashed the check at the J.C. Penney department store in Clearfield, Pennsylvania, where the thief assumed the identity (Identity theft) of Mr. Barner. J.C. Penney then turned the check over to Clearfield Trust Co. as its collection agent. Clearfield Trust Co. collected the check from the Federal Reserve Bank, knowing nothing about the forgery. When Holtzman returned to New York City in 1935, he joined the WPA (Works Progress Administration) Federal Art project, but was first assigned to write for the public relations department, since his art was considered too extreme for public placement. When Diller was promoted as managing supervisor of the Mural Division in New York, he appointed Holtzman as his assistant supervisor in charge of the abstract (Abstract art) mural painters. In 1936 Holtzman was instrumental in bringing together the nucleus of painters and sculptors who established the American Abstract Artists in 1937. Although he opposed the group’s emphasis on exhibitions, and the attempts of certain influential members to exclude all but “pure-abstractionists”, Holtzman maintained as active role for several years, serving as secretary in 1938 and again in 1940 and arranged for the three-week AAA exhibition and its educational component at the American Art Today Building of the New York World’s Fair (1939 New York World's Fair) in 1940, directed by Holger Cahill. The huge murals on historical subjects (first painted in the 1930s, when he worked for the WPA (Works Progress Administration) Federal Art Project) are probably the most widely seen of Tobey's works, prominently displayed in many public places in the US and elsewhere. These include public institutions in his native Connecticut; the Smithsonian Institution and other venues in Washington, DC; New York's Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum; and even an officers club in Saudi Arabia. Indeed, the Larchmont Gazette obituary (see 'External links') states, "Alton Tobey was best known for the murals, which he called 'symphonies of painting'." Alton Tobey was president of the National Society of Mural Painters from 1984 to 1988. In 1937, the bear exhibits were created under the Works Progress Administration. These exhibits were the zoo's first attempt at constructing more naturalistic exhibits instead of simply displaying animals in cages. In 1949, the Children's Zoo opened, thanks to a grant from the Sarah Mellon Scaife Foundation (Sarah Scaife Foundation). The Children's Zoo contained interactive exhibits and play areas for children, including a simulated large chunk of cheese that was inhabited by dozens of live mice (mouse). In 1967, the AquaZoo, a large aquarium, opened to the public. At the time of its completion, the AquaZoo was the only aquarium in Pennsylvania and the second largest aquarium in the United States. Bears The three bear exhibits were built in 1937 under the Works Progress Administration program, and are the oldest exhibits in the zoo. Three bear species are displayed here: American Black Bears, Spectacled Bears, and a Kodiak Bear. plot on which the school is situated cost $35,000. The school opened in the fall of 1939 with fifty faculty members and 1,250 pupils. In 1959, Kenmore East High School was opened as the district continued to grow. At that time, the Highland Parkway school officially became Kenmore West High School. Raymond S. Frazier was appointed to the position of principal of Kenmore West in 1952.
