Product Description

Review

“Mathews has done an excellent job in putting on paper the lore of the house she so obviously learned to love.”—Tuscaloosa News


“Amusing, informative, delightful. . . . Mathews [has an] easy-to-read, down-to-earth style.”—Chattanooga News-Free Press


“The mansion has watched history for more than a century; it has overheard the conversations of its residents and guests; it has seen itself change architecturally on the outside and decoratively on the inside; it has witnessed the destruction of the Civil War, difficulties during both World Wars, and student demonstrations that accompanied the Vietnam War; and it has captured the sights and sounds of its age in serving as host to more than 25,000 people who visit it annually from around the world. . . . Mathews tells its story with sensitivity and insight that come only from having been a part of its inner circle.”—Alabama Living

A Mansion's Memories

Written from the "perspective" of the house, giving great detail to all the University Presidents who have called the mansion home as they served the University of Alabama through the years. While reading the well documented stories, one gets the sense of family, time and events in a very personal way. Highly recommended.
