CAMPUS ICON MOVES — MSU's E.E. Cooley Building, originally Starkville's John M. Stone Cotton Mill, lost its recognizable "face" on Wednesday as university journey linemen Bubba Forrester and Ken Palmer removed the fiberglass Bully statue that had adorned the front entrance since the early 1960s. The iconic figure has been moved to the Gast Building, where previous Cooley Building employees now work. The Cooley Building has been vacated recently in anticipation of renovation work for The Mill multi-use development project. This building, built in 1902, is on the National Register of Historic Places.
