Notes
Survey number HABS CA-2663-J
Significance: The Roosevelt Base Historic District, constructed in 1940-1943, consists of 11 buildings designed in the International Style with Mediterranean Revival detailing, five structures, and extensive historic landscaping. It is eligible for the National Register for its site planning, landscaping, architectural style, and its Associate Architect Paul Williams, a nationally prominent Los Angeles Afro-American architect. Additionally, the District is significant for its association with the buildup of permanent Naval facilities on the Pacific Coast under President Franklin D. Roosevelt, during the mobilization period preceding the United States' entry into World War II. Building 41, as the former Labor Board Facility, is significant as a complementary structure to the original Main Gate 1 and Gatehouse 40 on the west. The building's northwest wall is attached to the Main Gate pier. The low-pitched hip roof with red tiles and wide, overhanging eaves are noted elements of the Mediterranean Revival style; and the ribbon windows are noted elements of the International Style. Various changes over time have compromised its architectural integrity.
