From the archives of The Daily News for June 22:

  • In 1914, Fort Worth Rotarians spent the day in Galveston as they were en route to a convention.
  • In 1964, at a special meeting of the Galveston Evening Optimist Club, it was agreed that the T-shirt League would be suspended temporarily until all facts concerning future operations were determined. This came about because of questions over player eligibility. Parents feared the safety of children playing against more polished baseball players.
  • In 1964, Galveston Coast Guardsmen reported going to the aid of four small crafts in distress, two cabin cruisers that had run aground and two shrimp trawlers with mechanical issues.
  • In 1989, Galveston Mayor Jan Coggeshall signed a contract for construction of a cruise ship terminal at Pier 25. The ceremonies at the Tremont House featured leaders in the community and in the project, including Andy Monsour, one of the prime members of the Cruise Ship Terminal Committee and City Manager Doug Matthews.
