November 20 in San Antonio history…

1900
The burning of the A.B. Frank Co., an immense wholesale establishment, proved to be the most disastrous conflagration in the history of the city.  Estimates of the loss range from $225,000 to $300,000.

1938
An old rock quarry, east of San Jacinto Park and near Brackenridge Park was approved by Mayor C. K. Quin as the site of the proposed athletic stadium for the public school system.

1970
Ground is broken on the new $31,993,000 Veteran’s Administration hospital in the South Texas Medical Center.  It is due to be completed by March 1, 1974.  (After the death of Audie Murphy on May 28, 1971, the hospital would be named the Audie L. Murphy VA Hospital in his honor.)
