News & Announcements

October 2 in San Antonio history...

1913
From 7 p.m. last night to 7 a.m. this morning 4.15 inches of rain has fallen on San Antonio, causing the San Antonio River and most other rivers in the county to overflow their banks.  The flood waters have claimed the life of a mother and her three small children near San Jose Mission.  Most of downtown San Antonio is also flooded.

1917 – World War I
Victor Keller, chairman of the exemption board for city district No. 3, said today that no white men would be sent from his district for the increment that must report at Camp Travis this week.  The reason is that to obtain enough white men, it would be necessary to go beyond the numbers wanted in the second 20 per cent that must go this week.  Negro men will be called, he said.  The number will be small as the total quota of men for the district is only thirty-four men.

1984
Burger King announces plans to enter the San Antonio market with 40 stores following the purchase of 20 Whopper-Burger locations from the Bates family.  The purchases ends an 11-year period during which Burger King agreed not to sell hamburgers under the name “Whopper” in a three-county (Bexar, Comal & Guadalupe) area.  Whopper Burger was founded in 1955 by Frank Bates, a graduate of Edison High School and Trinity University.  Their first location was the intersection of Edison Drive and West Avenue.
