  • In 1914, an 18-year-old boy was found by his parents in Galveston after a nationwide search.
  • In 1964, calm, mild and dry weather helped lure Galvestonians to the polls.
  • In 1964, vehicular ramps leading to East Beach were closed to traffic and police were ordering all cars off the beach. A riotous situation was sparked by a large group of students and the police were dispatched. Many police cars were dented and windows were broken by flying beer bottles.
