From the archives of The Daily News for March 1:

  • In 1914, after being delayed by weather, Sir Lionel Carden, British minister to Mexico, arrived in Galveston en route to Washington, D.C., on board the cruiser Essex of the English Navy. He was escorted to the Hotel Galvez by a group representing the state of Texas and the city of Galveston, where he was entertained until boarding a train for the nation’s capitol.
  • In 1964, James V. McGoodwin, a native of Galveston, was introduced as development and leasing consultant for Trans-West Development and Engineering Corp., a group planning to build “Magic Harbors of the World” theme park in Galveston.
  • In 1964, Richard Gonzales of Ball High was the leading vote-getter on the District 12-4A All-District second team, which also included Texas City basketball players Louis Sholmire, Albert Van Amberg and Richard Jones.
  • In 1989, Galveston Wharves trustees renewed the option of a group of stevedores to operate the Port of Galveston Container Terminal despite charges by one trustee that the group had produced no new business and was ineffective in promoting the terminal.
  • In 1989, one of possibly four groups planning to seek applications to develop a greyhound race track on the Galveston County mainland filed for its state license.
