Memorial Hospital
1939, Irving H. Dunbar and Hedrick and Lindsley. 107 Swift St.

Although Dunbar's city hall ( RF12) was his most publicized building, his most outstanding public building is this three-story hospital, a sober, symmetrically composed institutional building enlivened with fluted Art Deco piers and pilasters and copious relief plaques and panels. It was produced in collaboration with Houston architects Hedrick and Lindsley.
