“Dr. Sammy Ray, a world-renowned marine biologist and one of the founders of Texas A&M University at Galveston, died here earlier today at age 94”
I know he was not apart of the license program, but rather the scientific program on campus, Dr. Sammy Ray has been around the academy and pelican island since the inception of TAMUG. I’m sure many academy graduates over the decades have seen him or know of him in some form and fashion. Just last week I saw him walking around campus.
President Loftin from main campus said, “Sammy was a dear friend and colleague. I admired him not only as an extraordinary researcher, teacher and mentor, but also as one committed to exciting young people about science. He created Sea Camp, a program that has literally touched thousands of children and helped them channel their natural curiosity to pursue education and careers in science. He will be missed, but he leaves an incredible legacy for the entire world.”
