Rice University has several traditions, many of which revolve around “Sammy.” In 1917, a large canvas featuring Rice’s mascot (an owl) disappeared, so Rice students hired a detective to find the missing piece. It turned out that Texas A&M students had hijacked it. The private investigator sent a telegram to Rice that read, “Sammy is doing quite well and would like to see his parents at eleven,” hence the Rice University owl mascot being referred to as “Sammy” ever since.
