October 7 in San Antonio history…

1918 – World War I
The San Antonio Light reports that First Lieut. J. Montgomery Fly, an officer of Company B, 350th Infantry, of San Antonio was killed in action in France on Sept. 13.  He was married to Miss Dorothy Dibrell in September of 1917.  Lt. Fly was 30 years old.

1944
The Randolph Field Ramblers, a football team shaped from former college stars stationed at the base, give the Texas Longhorns their worst home defeat in history (up to that point), winning 42-6.

1992
President George H. W. Bush, Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and Mexican President Carlos Salinas de Gortari all flew to San Antonio and looked on today as their three trade ministers signed documents signaling an end to negotiations for the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA. “This meeting marks a turning point in the history of our three countries,” Bush told about 200 dignitaries and local business leaders packed into a courtyard at the Plaza San Antonio Hotel. “We are creating the largest, richest and most productive market in the entire world.”
