February 12 in San Antonio history...

1901
G. Bedell Moore announced he will erect a fine new building on the northeast corner of Avenue C and Houston St. for the tenant desiring it.

1961
Negro and white college students Sunday staged a peaceful but unsuccessful demonstration in an effort to force integration of the Majestic Theater.

1967
A fire swept through Ursuline Academy, gutting a portion of the school that had been built in 1913.  By the time firemen brought the fire under control, only the walls were standing and water pressure knocked down several unstable portions.
