The tale of Roy Simms; the man who haunts the Texas A&M Animal Industries Building.
Saturday, November 14, 1959. It was a day like any other on the campus of the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas. The Corps of Cadets was enjoying their weekend, the Aggie football team was preparing to play Rice in an eventual 7-2 loss, and Meat Locker Room Foreman, Roy Lee Simms was going about his daily routine of preparing meat in the animal laboratory located in the basement of the Animal Industries Building (ANIN).
Roy Simms first joined the Texas A&MC staff in 1938 as a worker in the campus dining hall. He left the college to serve his country in World War II as a member of the United States Navy and returned after his service in 1946. By 1948 he was promoted to Meat Locker Room Foreman; the position he held until his sudden and tragic death in 1959.
