Biography: 

No name is mentioned when Temple tells Ruby that the "gu-governor comes to our house" for dinner (56). The real Governor of Mississippi when Sanctuary was published was Theodore G. Bilbo, an outspoken white supremacist - but it's not necessary to believe that Faulkner intended readers to think of specifically of him. Temple's intention seems to be simply to assert her caste status as a shield.
