September 2 in San Antonio history…
The first Negro students registered in the San Antonio Independent School District’s previously all-white schools with absolutely no racial flareups.
An early-morning truck crash caused a half-hour utility blackout in a 5-block area in the neighborhood of the 1800 block of S. Presa today. The driver was blinded by the lights of an oncoming car and lost control of his half-ton pickup. It sheared through a utility pole, grazed three palm trees and came to rest against the El Rancho restaurant at 1803 S. Presa, after breaking a railing.
Classes begin for the first time at the brand new 1604 campus of UTSA.
