Lupton, 1871–1874 Nathaniel Thomas Lupton comes to us from Southern University in Greensboro, Alabama. The new president has been a chemistry professor in Virginia, Mississippi, and Alabama. He studied in Germany under the famous Robert Wilhelm Bunsen, inventor of the laboratory gas burner that bears his name. I am delighted to have such a distinguished man and his wife, Virginia, live with me. After months of being vacant, I will be in good hands. Our state is happy with President Lupton, and citizens send their sons to school here again.

Gorgas and the girls arrive. She is a smart, delightful lady. Often I read over her shoulder as she writes letters to her older son. I see how much she likes university life and me. Mrs. Gorgas remembers her early years in Tuscaloosa when her father was governor. Her mother died when she was only nine years old. Relatives and friends took the six children into their homes. Amelia went to live with Almira Woods, her mother’s closest friend and the wife of University president Alva Woods. She lived with the Woods family for two years before her father remarried and moved all the family to the Mobile area.
