Hello Everyone:

43 years ago the city of San Antonio, Texas celebrated its 250th birthday. In keeping with Texas tradition no small party would do, the final result was a six month long International Exposition known as HemisFair ’68.

In honor of the 43rd anniversary of the opening day of HemisFair ’68 I am excited to announce the launching of my own website: www.worldsfair68.info. This is first online fan based commentary dedicated to the 1968 World’s Fair. The basic idea behind the site is to share my growing collection and knowledge of all things HemisFair with anyone who is interested in viewing an exciting chapter in San Antonio’s history.

Special thanks to Bill Cotter, Bill Young & Urso Chappel for your support in helping me evolve my site from a dream into a reality

Sincerely,

Chris A. Medina

Hello Everyone:

44 years ago today the city of San Antonio celebrated it's 250th birthday with the opening of the 1968 World's Fair - HemisFair '68 and invited the world to join in the six month long celebration. Today marks the first anniversary of the launching of my own website www.worldsfair68.info sharing my growing collection of memorabilia and knowledge of HemisFair '68, from an idea in the early 1960's thru today's plans for the redevelopment of the site. Be sure to check out the site in the coming weeks as I am in the process of adding a few dozen new items as well as renovating several existing pages to better organize existing material :) Viva HemisFair!

Sincerely,

Chris A. Medina

Hello Everyone:

Hope we all had a great New Year :) Just wanted to share some great new updates to www.worldsfair68.info.

Last fall I had the pleasure of meeting with a hand full of local San Antonio residents who were involved with HemisFair '68 and got to hear thier memories of the funding, construction and operation of the San Antonio World's Fair. I have uploaded several of my interviews to the site under: "After the Fair" > "Conversations". I still have one more to upload and hope to have a few more meetings in the upcomming months.

Recently I created a Twitter account @worldsfair68 as an extension to my website to further share my growing collection and knowledge of HemisFair '68 as well as the city's redevelopment of the site, the plan is to post trivia / images from the Fair on the same day they occured 45 years earlier in 1968. Currently I am posting newspaper clippings of the construction of the Tower of the Americas.

Sincerely,
Christopher Medina
