News & Announcements

November 8 in San Antonio history...

1917 – World War I
Senator Warren G. Harding of Ohio, in San Antonio as the guest of F. E. Scobey, said today, “We shall never pay the stupendous cost of our unpreparedness again.  I expect to see 500,000 American youths trained every year of the future, no matter when or how this present war ends.  So you can look for these enormous army additions in San Antonio to be more or less permanent.  The Congress will adopt universal military training this winter.”

1943
A 38-year-old woman who considers herself “not bad looking,” offered to marry anybody who can furnish shelter for her and her daughter.  In a letter to Mayor Mauermann the woman said she was desperate because she had been unable to afford rent.

1977
San Antonio voters establish the creation of a Metropolitan Transit Authority (VIA) in San Antonio.
