UA History Trivia: The Gorgas Family

The Gorgas Library is named after Amelia Gayle Gorgas. Mrs. Gorgas "was the first female librarian on the campus, and the Amelia Gayle Gorgas Library was the first academic building at the University named for a woman."  In its namesake, the Gorgas Library reflects the history of the campus, while its technology and services reflect the New South.
