June 23 in San Antonio history…

1915
The St. Anthony Hotel opened its new roof garden with the Royal Hungarian Orchestra and the dancing of Fenner and Tolman.

1977
Incarnate Word College President Sister Margaret Slattery and Amy Freeman Lee, chairman of the college’s board of trustees, Thursday announced the beginning of a $1.6 million fund-raising campaign to build a new teaching theater at the college. “This theater is not going to be just a building,” Lee said. “It’s going to serve as the hub of our entire campus.” The proposed teaching facility will enable the college to expand its theatrical department by developing curriculum into specialized technical areas, such as lighting, set design and costuming, and by increasing enrollment in the arts and expanding services to the community.

2011Kawhi Leonard
The Spurs trade guard George Hill, who Coach Gregg Popovich once called “my favorite player,” to Indiana for a package highlighted by 6-foot-7 small-forward Kawhi Leonard (photo, with 2014 Finals MVP trophy), whom the Pacers selected with the 15th overall pick.  General Manager R.C. Buford says of the trade, “This might have been one of the most difficult nights in Spurs history, as long as we’ve been here. To lose a player like George Hill, who has meant so much to our team, to our culture, to our locker room … it’s one of the most difficult decisions we’ve had to make.”
