November 19 in San Antonio history…

1914
The University of Texas is trying to schedule a Thanksgiving Day game next fall with Notre Dame.  If Notre Dame accepts, it is fairly certain that the Longhorns will play Haskell in San Antonio sometime in the two weeks before Thanksgiving.

1939
J. Frank Dobie, author and historian, delivered a scathing criticism of Pompeo Coppini’s Alamo cenotaph and commented: “There is one good thing about the monument. Nobody can see it from the door going into the Alamo.”

1985
Trinity University has “A Conversation with Cary Grant” at Laurie Auditorium.  It is Mr. Grant’s last visit to the Alamo City.  He passed away prior to a similar show in Davenport, Iowa on November 29, 1986.
