February 6 in San Antonio history…

1950
An invitation to inspect the new Coliseum was issued to the public by E. W. Bickett, Coliseum manager. Bickett stated that the building will be open every day for public inspection, especially on Saturdays and Sundays, and that visitors would be welcome to inspect the grounds and facilities that will house the San Antonio Livestock Exposition and Autry-Colborn World’s Championship
Rodeo, Feb. 17-26.

1959
Four members of the North East School District board planned to leave San Antonio today for Little Rock to meet with Dr. Virgil Blossom, former Little Rock school superintendent who is the leading contender for the North East superintendent’s position.

1974
George Gervin, the fourth leading scorer in the ABA with a 25.3 average, is now a San Antonio Spur—for at least 10 days. U.S. District Judge Adrian Spears ruled today that Gervin cannot play for any other team in the ABA during the next 10 days. Judge Spears stressed that he did not rule that Gervin had to play for S.A. His ruling meant only that if Gervin is to play in the ABA in the next 10 days, it had to be for the Spurs. Shortly after Spears made his decision about 4:30 p.m., the Spurs held a news conference which Gervin attended. They announced that the 6-7, 180-pound sharpshooter would wear jersey No. 44 and play for the Spurs tomorrownight in the Convention Center Arena against the Utah Stars.
