December 3 in San Antonio history…

1869
The Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word formally dedicate Santa Rosa Hospital, then known as Charity Hospital, located at Cameron and Commerce Streets.  An advertisement in the San Antonio Express promised that the Infirmary would open to “all persons without distinction of nationality or creed.”

1943
Joe Louis and Sugar Ray Robinson appear at the Kelly Field Enlisted Men’s Club to fight exhibition bouts.  Louis’ scheduled exhibition bout was cancelled because his sparring partner, 1st. Sgt. George Nicholson, had undergone a nose operation.  Sugar Ray Robinson boxed Cpl. George J. “Jackie” Wilson.

1998
