Memphis: Hospital (Location Key)


In this case we have to speculate not just about the location of this location, but also about how to label it. It is the place in "Uncle Willy" where, after the failure of their attempts to wean Willy from morphine fail, a group of townspeople take him. All the text says in that they "take him to Memphis" (231). Later, after Willy has moved on to alcohol as his drug of choice, they take him to "the Keeley" in Memphis (238), but since that rehabilitation clinic focused on alcoholism, not drug addiction, it's likely that this first rehab in Memphis happens elsewhere, though all the text says is that he is there to be "cured" (232). "Hospital" here is the generic term we decided to use.
