Additional Details:
Kate Duncan Smith D.A.R. School. The largest project ever undertaken at the Kate Duncan Smith D.A.R. School was the Doris Pike White Auditorium-Gymnasium, named in honor of Mrs. Ashmead White, President General, N.S.D.A.R., 1959-62. This beautiful and functional structure was begun on October 24, 1960, completed the following summer, and dedicated by historical coincidence on October 24, 1961, by a very proud President General who called it "more beautiful than my fondest expectation" - this was an all states project costing approximately $128,000. The modern building of buff brick and beautiful native stone has 30 dome lights that provide ample light even on cloudy days. It has a regulation-size basketball court, ample space for physical education activities, a large, attractive stage, and a basketball seating capacity of approximately 1300
