Description: 

"The Coop," as the narrative calls the dormitory in which Temple lives, was an actual nickname. In 1930 women students at the University of Mississippi resided in two adjacent dormitories - Ricks and Ward - which were connected by a dining hall. According to A. B. Lewis, a student in the early twenties, "We called them collectively the ‘coop,’ and boys who frequented the ‘coop’ were called ‘coop hounds.’”
