The University got its nickname Ole Miss via a contest in 1897. That same year, the student year book was being published for the first time. As a way to find a name for the book, a contest was held to solicit suggestions from the student body. Elma Meek, a student at the time, submitted the winning entry of Ole Miss. Interestingly, Ole Miss is not derived from Mississippi but is actually a takeoff from the title often given to the mistress of a plantation.  This sobriquet was chosen not only for the yearbook, but also became the name by which the University is now affectionately known.
