Crocker Hall was named after Norman G. Crocker and was constructed in 1942. Mr. Crocker was born January 19, 1890 near Center, Texas. He attended Texas A&M University from September 1912 to December 1917. He enlisted in the U.S. Army in December 1917. Mr. Crocker drowned when the Tuscania ship was sunk by a German submarine on February 5, 1918 thus becoming the first Aggie to be killed in World War I.
Crocker Hall closed its doors at the end of the Spring 2011 semester and was demolished shortly after, along with Moore and McInnis halls, to make way for a new 600 space northside living-learning residence hall.
We are committed to commemorating Crocker, Moore, and McInnis halls appropriately to live on in Aggie history and tradition. Many former residents have already expressed interest and support for the commemoration. Aggies have long believed that the real spirit of Texas A&M is ingrained in the student body and the traditions of this great University. Today, because of the support of individuals like you, traditions of On Campus Aggies continue to be part of student life in the residence halls and across the campus. | More information about Crocker-Moore-McInnis Commemoration
