News & Announcements

August 7 in San Antonio history...

1937
The first contribution to the newly constructed Alamo museum, comprising valued documents of early Texas, has been received by Mrs. Leita Small, Alamo custodian. The documents were presented by Mrs. Susan Miller, 115 Humphrey street, and her kinswoman, Mrs. James Sandusky Clarke, of Baltimore. Mrs. Clarke is a guest at the Miller home. Among the relics is the diary of James McKnight, who fought in the Texas revolution. The diary is dated 1838. McKnight was an ancestor of he donors. Still another of the documents is a letter dated 1842 and signed by T. Borden Jr., as collector of customs at Galveston.

1945
The San Antonio Express and Light newspapers both report that a bomb, larger than any previously known, was dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima causing great damage and loss of life.  However, back on July 16, the San Antonio newspapers did not pick up a little-publicized story printed in the Gallup, NM;  Santa Fe, NM and El Paso newspapers that mentioned a huge explosion at a munitions dump near the Alamogordo Army Air Base.  This was actually the first nuclear test and would have been quite a scoop.  News of the July 16 test was finally printed today along with the news of the Hiroshima bombing.

1946
The 97th polio victim for the year is a 51 year-old man who is suffering from facial paralysis and is in the care of the M & S Hospital.
