Memphis: Veterans' Hospital (Location Key)

Code: 
1081
Description: 

When in The Mansion Mink claims he has been "over a year in a hospital up in Memphis," the black man for whom he is picking cotton asks if he means "the Govment Vetruns Hospital" (439). Mink of course is trying to disguise the fact that for almost forty years he's been in prison in Mississippi, but there were several real medical facilities for veterans in Memphis by the 1940s, although it's not clear which one the farmer is thinking of.
