January 19 in San Antonio history…

1910
With more than $2,000 in the treasury and a membership of over 700, the Young Women’s Christian Association was finally organized last night.  Mrs. G. Bedell Moore was elected temporary chairman and Miss Marion Bliem, secretary.

1928
So serious has become the crowded condition of San Antonio’s two high schools [Main Avenue & Brackenridge] , that both are threatened with relegation to the second high school class, it was revealed today.  Only the building of a third high school can solve the problem.

1958
