Yesterday’s News

1826    Charles Henry Nimitz, pioneering Fredericksburg hotelier, was born in Bremen, Lower Saxony. Nimitz moved to Fredericksburg in 1846 with the first settlers and built the Nimitz Hotel in 1852. Nimitz joined the Texas Rangers on August 4, 1851, and served four months. When the Civil War began, he organized the Gillespie Rifles and was commissioned captain of that group by the Confederacy. He was the grandfather of Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz.

1923    The Texas Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance was founded as a result of a November 9, 1923, letter from Mary Bell Smith, president of the Dallas Physical Education Round Table.

Photogravure, Nude dancing woman by Lucien Walery. Probably not what the TAHPERD had in mind.
