The Sandman, in folklore, is a figure who brings good sleep and dreams by sprinkling magic sand onto sleeping children. Also a symbol of the passage of time to death; the grim reaper sometimes depicted as holding an hourglass and scythe.
Howard "Sandman" Simms was a tap dancer in vaudeville, who acquired his name from the sand he sprinkled on the floor to amplify the sound of his steps when he danced. In his senior years, Simms appeared at the famous Apollo Theater, comedically ushering failed acts offstage with a shepherd's crook, or "hook."
