My First Living New Deal entry goes live!

I added a University of Florida building to the Living New Deal map of buildings and monuments created under the New Deal.

“Albert A. Murphree Hall was undertaken during the Great Depression with the assistance of the Federal Administration of Public Works. The building is a residence hall on the northern side of the University of Florida. Designed by architect Rudolph Weaver in Collegiate Gothic style. The building was named in honor of Dr. Albert A. Murphree, the second president of the University of Florida. Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.”
