November 29 in San Antonio history…

1901
The Daughters of the Republic are taking steps to rebuild the round tower at the San Jose Mission, which has fallen into such decay in the past few years.  The cost will be about $300.

1956
Movie star Clark Gable is spotted in Valerio’s Italian restaurant on Broadway.  It seems he had been in Kerrville on a hunting trip and got a hankering for Italian food.

1963
Linus Baer and the Lee Volunteers outlast Warren McVea and the Brackenridge Eagles, 55-48, in what would later be voted the greatest football game ever played in San Antonio.
