This is not residential architecture, but this is the library at UofAL. It's named after an ancestral cousin, who was the chief librarian on campus, Amelia Gayle Gorgas. She was married to Br.Gen. Josiah Gorgas, CSA, who was briefly president of the university
after the war until failing health forced him to resign. Their son, Wm.
Crawford Gorgas, was U.S. Surgeon General, who developed cure for
malaria, which allowed the Panama Canal to be completed.

Bryan, thanks for such an informative and interesting look at Alabama architecture. I'm sure there were many more homes you saw during your research. Look forward to learning about other states and styles.
