October 23 in San Antonio history…
Eleven people, nine of which are children, drown when the San Antonio River floods after a torrential rain. The house of Albert Liebe was washed from its foundation, resulting in the death of Mrs. Liebe and her infant child born just hours earlier, along with four other children: Henry, 14; Otilia, 8; Edna, 6; Edward, 4 and Mrs. August Liebe, Albert’s mother.
San Antonio’s first drive-in theater opens at 3602 Fredericksburg Road.
Soprano Leontyne Price performs at Laurie Auditorium.
