May 4 in San Antonio history...

1901
President McKinley came to San Antonio and delivered a speech in front of the Alamo - the first President to do so.

1942
Bexar residents whose names begin with letters "A" through "L" are flocking to elementary school registration booths, signing up to receive War Ration Book No. 1.  Stamps from the books will be needed for sugar.

1952
Bulldozers and wrecking crews are ready to flatten 35 acres of ramshackle housing at Chihuahua and S. Laredo to make way for Cassiano Homes, a new housing authority project.
