Roy Tyler Prison File

Roy Tyler, No. 12276

Tyler was one of one hundred fifty Buffalo Soldiers who in 1917 marched to Houston to confront police after a rumor spread that one of their men had been shot and killed by white officers. The resulting “Houston Riot” left fifteen civilians and four soldiers dead. Fourteen of the rioters were executed but Tyler escaped with a twenty year sentence at Leavenworth for “Mutiny and Assault to Murder.” Tyler was a gifted athlete who played in the Negro Leagues upon being paroled in 1924. In 1929 Tyler was sent to prison again after he was convicted of robbery.
