Transcript Pregnant What? The first housing area for UH students was known as "Pregnant Valley." But this post-World II housing was replaced by the Quadrangle dorms in the '50s. Later, the Moody Towers and Cougar Place were added. In the future, of- _____^ ficials say, UH may be considered a residential school instead of a commuter campus. Housing has had ^^^^ a long and colorful history and, in fact, has produced innovations such as coed dorms and "necking rules." Houston veterans returned from World War II ready to start new lives. Many decided to start families as they pursued their educations. But first they had to have a place to live. "That was the primary purpose of the housing — for veterans returning from WWII," said Ray Stidham, who retired from UH in 1980 after 37 years of service. He was a maintenance man when soldiers began returning from "Stidham said he remembers standing in mud up to his knees that first year..." war. Stidham said this first housing area was called Pregnant Valley "because there were so many young couples coming back and quite a few children born there (in the trailers and barracks)." Construction on the first student housing was started in 1946. Dirt and shell roads were built and trailers were moved onto the site. Stidham said he remembers standing in mud up to his knees that first year, trying to get in an ice truck so students could fill their ice boxes. B_-^_ Plans are under way for new student apartments to be built by next year. Tom Penett, as- ^^^^^ sociate director of residence halls, said these units will be mainly for married students, single parents and couples with children. These new dorms are needed because the current dorms do not cater to these students. — Darlene Mcllvaine Front: Tricia Anastasio, Elena Roach, Shari Cason, Jeff Bell, David Hughes, Eric Sweiter, Chris Viles, Jerry Samouce.
