“A serious menace to health and falling property values caused the rapidly growing city of Shreveport to discontinue depositing garbage and rubbish on dumping grounds and to build this modern incinerator,” according to the Public Works Administration. Built with PWA [Project 3068, La.] funds at a total cost, including paving, garage, and architects’ fee, of $183,008, the Incinerator was the first major American building of its kind where complete design and supervision service was provided by a firm of architects. Selected as one of the buildings illustrated in the United States Pavilion at the Paris International Exposition of 1937, as well as a traveling exhibition organized by the Museum of Modern Art.
