November 28 in San Antonio history…

1730
Sixteen immigrant families from the Canary Islands arrive in San Antonio.

1938
Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys record “San Antonio Rose” at the Blackstone Hotel in Fort Worth.

1946
Students at San Antonio Junior College (SAC) will have a Christmas holiday extending from December 15 to December 30, excluding New Year’s Day.
Dr. J. O. Loftin said he could find absolutely no reason why New Year’s Day should be observed. He continued: “It comes in the dullest part of the year. It doesn’t commemorate anything.  It’s not even the first of the year.”  Dr. Loftin thinks that March is the proper time to observe New Year’s Day. It is the beginning of the cycle of the harvest, the opening of spring. January 1 is nothing except a gloomy winter day, he says.
