August 1 in San Antonio history...

While digging a well on the Hot Wells property today, workmen discovered the skeleton of an “immense mastodon.” The discovery was reported to the property owner, Mr. Shacklett, and “he made an investigation, finding every portion of the frame to be petrified, excepting the teeth, on which the enamel was still plain.”  The Daily Light reports that the bones were collected together and will be well taken care of as they are “rare curiosities and very valuable.”

The San Antonio Public Library purchases a rare first edition King James Bible and other rare books with money donated by the estate of Harry Hertzberg.

The Majestic Theater features MTV favorites The Psychedelic Furs and Talk Talk.
