The San Antonio newspapers feature plans for the new Poinsard complex (right), including an 18-story apartment tower, restaurants and a private club to be located on the grounds of the Ursuline Academy. The plan never comes to fruition and is derisively referred to as “Poinsard’s Folly.”
The new Main Library building opens at S. St. Mary’s and West Market streets.
The Light goes out. Unable to find a buyer, the San Antonio Light newspaper ceases publication after 112 years serving San Antonio.
