1963 Amelia Gayle Gorgas Library, University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, AL


Gorgas Library is named after Amelia Gayle Gorgas, who was UA's first female librarian and served the University as hospital matron, librarian, and postmistress for 25 years until her retirement at the age of 80 in 1907.

The main steps to Gorgas Library from the Quad cover the ruins of the antebellum library that was burned during the Civil War. [SOURCE]
