August 16 in San Antonio history...

1947
A complete change in the admistration and personnel of Robert B. Green hospital was recommended today by a seven-doctor committee from the Bexar County Medical Association. The group said the decline of the hospital from one of the best to an unaccredited status is due to neglect, indifference and incompetence.

1973
The San Antonio Light reports that many “with-it” San Antonians are anxiously awaiting the opening of Jim Hasslocher’s newest $1 million restaurant, The Magic Time Machine, on the former site of the Golden Derrick, off 410 near Nacogdoches road.  The restaurant “will feature discotheque music with an ‘in-person’ dee-jay at console, magic arts at tables performed by lovely Frances Willard, daughter of  the great Willard the Wizard. Piece-de-resistance items will also include prime steaks and drinks.”

1975
The San Antonio Express-News reports that the alligator gardens at Brackenridge Park will be closing within the next two weeks.  George Kimbrell, who captured the alligators himself and has operated the garden for the last 23 years, will donate the alligators to the Alligator Gardens of Hot Springs, Arkansas.
