December 2 in San Antonio history...

The moss-covered fountain in the patio of the county courthouse, for so long a beautiful relic of history, is to be sent to the Joske Memorial Home to make room for expansion.

At 10 a.m. sharp, the doors to Municipal Auditorium are opened and San Antonians rush in to see “the new Ford” – the Model A – first new Ford model in 15 years.  By noon, five-thousand have seen the new phaeton and the two-door sedan, with 5,000 more predicted to see the cars before the doors close late tonight.

The deposed Shah of Iran arrives at Kelly AFB to recuperate from cancer surgery at Wilford Hall.  He would leave the US on December 15 and reside in Panama until March 1980 when he relocated to Egypt.  He died there on July 27, 1980 and is buried in Cairo.
