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

Book Description

As part of The University of Alabama’s 175th anniversary celebration (2006), the new edition of A Mansion’s Memories includes details of the tenures of the four presidents who have served since the Mathews term. Profusely illustrated with 69 black-and-white and 17 color photographs, this classic is sure to be welcomed anew by alumni and friends of the University and all lovers of fine old buildings that still function in their original capacities.

Great Reading of Historical Homes Dec 2 2013
By Joyce P. McCullough - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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.
