BLAST From the PAST

One hundred and ten years ago this week, the Progress reported that officers from the Corps of Engineers, who were investigating area waters to determine a location for a deep water port, had chosen Aransas Pass. The Progress published the final report of the engineers in full December 23, 1910. The front page for that edition was an illustration of Santa Claus, but half of the second page was taken up with the engineers’ report. It’s dry reading if one is not an engineer, but the story of Aransas Pass took a turn that week and the port referred to is still frequently in the Progress pages more than a century later.
