Myla BAKER in the Business Pages


Myla BAKER was mentioned in the financial section of the San Antonio Light at least once. In Apr 1918, she bought "the Terrell homestead" for $125,000 cash. I have yet to find a newspaper article describing that she worked for her brother, T. B. BAKER, but other websites say that she did.


Newspaper article: San Antonio Light (San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas, USA) 14 Apr 1918:

Lot brings $125,000 - John W. Warren Sells Property Corner of Travis and Jefferson Streets

The sale for the vacant lot at Travis and Jefferson Streets, formerly known as the Terrell homestead, was announced Saturday by John W. Warren, the consideration being $125,000 cash. The purchaser of the property is given in the deed as Myla Baker of Fort Scott, Kan. This property has a frontage of 90 feet on Travis Street and 151 feet on Jefferson Street. It was purchased three and a half years ago by Mr. Warren, who paid $90,000 for it.

"While I am making a very substantial profit on the deal," said Mr. Warren in announcing the sale, "I still think that the property was sold at a very conservative figure and that the new purchaser, if desiring to do so, can readily dispose of it at a profit.

"The demand for Southwest Texas realty is growing rapidly. Within the last week the land department of the Central Trust Company has sold $51,000 worth of farm land."


About two years after her death, there are several mentions of "No. 1 Myla Baker Estate" which I assume is a drilling rig.

Newspaper article: San Antonio Express (San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas, USA) 14 May 1952:

... Northeast of Hamon's wildcat, Argo Oil Corporation No. 1 Myla Baker Estate was drilling at 3,952 feet on a 9,500-foot contract. ....


Please Note: I am not related to the Baker family. I simply bought Myla BAKER's passport in an antique store then created a web page about it.
