Historical Note

San Antonio Fair, Inc., incorporated in December 1962 to formally organize the planning, fundraising and designing of HemisFair '68. When HemisFair '68 opened on April 6, 1968, it held the honor of being the only "world's fair" that year to be sanctioned by the Paris-based Bureau of International Expositions and the first world's fair ever to be held in Texas. The fair, held in downtown San Antonio, Texas, was open for six months from April 6, 1968 to October 6, 1968.

The idea for HemisFair '68 originated in 1958, with a handful of San Antonio businessmen who had a vision of a world's fair in San Antonio, Texas. Department store executive Jerome K. Harris proposed a fair to be held in 1968 to celebrate 250th anniversary of the founding of San Antonio and the shared cultural heritage of San Antonio and its Latin American neighbors. His idea gained the support of San Antonio Congressman Henry B. Gonzalez, and local businessmen William R. Sinkin, H. B. (Pat) Zachry, and James Gaines, who soon began to cultivate support for HemisFair '68.

The organizing of the fair demanded years of planning, coordinated investment, the support of all levels of city, state, and federal government, and massive time and commitment from the persons involved. HemisFair '68 was financed by: 450 San Antonio underwriters (local business firms and individuals); voter-approved San Antonio City bonds; Urban Renewal Agency funds; an appropriation of $4,500,000 by the Texas State Legislature; and two appropriations ($125,000 in 1965 and $6.75 million in 1966) by the U.S. Congress.

In keeping with Jerome K. Harris's original idea of celebrating the shared cultural heritage of San Antonio and its neighbors, the theme of HemisFair '68 was "The Confluence of Civilizations in the Americas." Approximately twenty governments and ten corporations participated and sponsored educational and entertainment pavilions communicating the theme to visitors.

Figures for attendance fell short of the initial predictions of 7.2 million persons, and were actually closer to 6.4 million people. Contributing factors which may have influenced the lower-than-expected attendance included the assassination of civil rights leader Martin Luther King two days before the fair opened and the assassination of presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy in June 1968.

Despite the organizers' disappointment regarding attendance, hosting and constructing HemisFair '68 had a broad impact on San Antonio, including fostering urban renewal in the downtown area, retail development along the San Antonio River Walk, and expansion of the local tourism industry.

HemisFair '68, the 1968 World's Fair, was the only formally sanctioned world's fair held in the world during 1968 and was the first officially recognized world's fair ever held in the southern half of the United States.

Following is a chronology of the events related to the planning of the HemisFair.

Acquisition Information

The San Antonio Fair, Inc. Records were donated to the Trinity University Library in October 1968, immediately following the closing of HemisFair '68. The records came to Trinity from the executive offices of San Antonio Fair, Inc., at the fair's headquarters in the German-English School. They remained at the Trinity University Library until May 1985. During this time, many records were lost due to mold and a lack of proper preservation. When the records were transferred to the San Antonio Public Library (SAPL) in 1985, they were stored in the Library's Hertzberg annex, where they were reBoxed and given some preservation treatment. The SAPL donated the records to University of Texas at San Antonio Libraries Special Collections in 1992 (Acc. 1992-05).
