June 16, 1942 - District WPA office closing: Closing of the Green Bay and Ashland district WPA offices by the end of next week and transfer of operations to offices in Milwaukee and Madison was announced here this morning by Mark Muth, state administrator.

Coincident with his announcement one was made by Mayor Alex Biemeret that quarters occupied by WPA in the City Hall annex the last four and one-half years will be offered on a rental basis to the Office of Price Administration which plans on opening a district headquarters in Green Bay within the next few weeks. The OPA wants 5,000 square feet of floor space and the annex would be very desirable the mayor observed. This office, which will supervise the various price control measures, will employ between 45 and 50 people and is to have jurisdiction in 10 or 12 counties.
