Thank you, but that St. Michael's School is in Cuero, Texas.

Searching for the original St. Michael's School that was on the southside of San Antonio.

There is a St. Michael's in Cuero, Texas, established in 1877.

The St. Michael's School in San Antonio opened in 1873.

Close but no cigar.

There's a pretty good history at :History of St. Michael’s Parish in San Antonio — Polish Texan Current Events - History - Genealogy - Polish Texans Website

But no patch illustration. You might find it in some of the several references they cite, though.

"In 1965 the church and property was sold to the San Antonio Urban Renewal Project for the construction of Hemisfair '68. at a price of $370,000. A new St. Michael's church was built at 418 Indiana , southeast of the original location. The marble altars, communion rail, and stained glass windows were relocated to Immaculate Heart of Mary Church at 617 S. Santa Rosa Blvd."

Thanks for the brand name ! You could also get little 4 ounce cans of Gepharts chile out of those ovens, mix the chile into a 5 cent bag of Fritos, and eat it with one of those wooden stick spoons they had. They were a junk food heaven. Moon Pies, Big Hunk bars...and on and on.

I called the St. Michael's Church rectory this morning and they had no patch or any recollection of it. I also checked the Polish Texas Genealogy.

Back in the 60's, I remember Mom would go to the A. B. Frank Company on Alamo street to buy them for fifty cents. A. B. Frank Company back then was the supplier for all school patches and ROTC & Military uniforms.

Someone out there has one tucked away.

There was a centennial book I believe written in 1966 about St. Michael's. I am trying to find that as well.

Thank you for research!

Have you tried contacting anyone out at the St Hedwigs church? The Rt Rev Msg Thomas Moczygemba was instrumental in establishing a number of Polish Catholic churches including St Hedwig. That community has been around since the late 1800's and had very close ties with St Michaels in San Antonio. It's possible that some of the students that attended St Michaels moved on to settle out near St Hedwigs, or had relatives that attended St Michael's. I'm sure they have a historian or parish member that may have a lead or two that might help you find what you are looking for. Good luck...I'm always on a hunt like this, so I hope you find your treasure.5

Thanks, WC,

I called St. Hedwig's and left a message. I also emailed them.
