Oxford: The Coop (Location Key)

Code: 
323
Description: 

"The Coop," as Sanctuary 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.'" (In Flags in the Dust one of the young men playing tennis at Belle's was expelled from the state university for hanging a red light "above the door of the girls' dormitory," 186)
