Architect William Clayton Meador was active from around 1909. I’ve been unable to find out anything about his parter, except that his surname was Wolfe, not Wolf. The partnership does not appear to have lasted long in any case. I’ve found references to several projects attributed to Meador alone, from the 1910s, the 1920s, and the 1930s, but the Grand Theatre and a 1919 church in Archer City are the only projects I can find attributed to the firm by any source available on the Internet.

TexasEscapes has a few small pictures and a brief essay about Electra’s Grand Theatre.

You should see the Grand Theater now. The outside has been restored to the original condition. Alas there is much to be done on the inside. This is a project taken on by The Electra Historical Society and local persons interested in this project. Ways to raise funds for the interior are being discussed and local volunteers are working to clear the interior of trash that is still inside. Some personal donations have helped get us this far and any others would be greatly appreciated.
