From the archives of The Daily News for May 24:

  • In 1914, the deep water committee was making further plans for the Galveston harbor. 
  • In 1914, the Equal Suffrage Association held a meeting and planned further activities.
  • In 1964, Moody State School for Cerebral Palsied Children celebrated their 13th anniversary with an open house.
  • In 1964, graduating seniors in the county’s eight school districts, including Galveston, Texas City, La Marque, Hitchcock, League City, High Island, Santa Fe and Friendswood, heard baccalaureate sermons.
  • In 1989, the Dickinson City Council voted to allow the police union to put up a bulletin board in the police station. City Administrator Luther Morgan had previously refused to allow the newly formed union to put up the board because it “could be construed as official recognition of a collective bargaining agent.”
  • In 1989, Ernestine Moreno graduated from College of the Mainland alongside her son David. Moreno planned to study nursing, but when the Texas City disaster of 1947 destroyed her family home and killed her brother, her progress was halted.
