Dr. Basil Manly, the Founder of the Alabama Historical Society (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Dr. Basil Manly, the Founder of the Alabama Historical Society The late letters of Dr. Manly contain no reference to the bant ling he had so fondly cherished for five years. Indeed it is not supposed that he took any part in the work of the Society after 185 5. But an explanation for this is doubtless found in the fact not only that he was deeply absorbed in other matters, but also because of the association of the Historical Society with the Uni versity, by which it was supposed to be nourished and fostered. The story of the first five years of our history is full of interest, but no feature of it is more prominent than the noble work of him who founded and fostered it with so much patriotic zeal.
