    Hi Jan, I left the w off Andrew. He designed it in 1929, but The Medical Arts Building was an annex to the American National Insurance Co. Building of 1913, which occupied the rest of the 21st Street front of that block until its demolition in 1972, according to the Galveston Architecture Guidebook.
