May 17 in San Antonio history...

1908
Before 500 friends of the institution, the cornerstone of Reinbolt Hall, new annex to St. Louis College, was laid today.  The site is one mile from the terminla of the West End car line.  Brother John Wolf presided.

1918
The importance of Medina Lake as a resort for San Antonians was demonstrated yesterday when more than 500 autos passed over the toll road and 2,500 people visited the dam.  Black bass fishing was very good.

1948
Construction of an 18-foot Highway from Bandera through the Old Indian Pass to Kerrville, a project sought for a decade by Hill Country residents, will become a reality by the end of the summer.
