February 12 in San Antonio history…

1933
San Antonio begins transition from streetcars to buses, discontinuing the Highland Park, Denver Heights, Beacon Hill, Tobin Hill and South Presa traction lines.

1950
Trinity University’s long-planned building program on the new campus near Alamo Stadium has finally been launched. Work on the administration building at the high point of the 107-acre campus was started today by New York construction firm, James Stewart and Co.

1967
A fire swept through Ursuline Academy, gutting a portion of the school that had been built in 1913.  By the time firemen brought the fire under control, only the walls were standing and water pressure knocked down several unstable portions.
