Harold Hadnott Memorial Clinic

-A A +A
1960, John S. Chase. 1306 Duncan St.

Dr. William H. Hadnott Jr., one of the first African Americans to graduate from the University of Texas Medical Branch, began his general medical practice in Bay City in 1958 at a time when access to health care for African Americans, especially in small towns, was difficult. Chase designed Dr. Hadnott's clinic, a garden office building with paneled window and door assemblies set between brick panels and a patio court visually integrated with the interior but shielded from the street with a solar screen block wall. The pitched roof is not original.
