THE PRESIDENT'S HOME AND AUBURN'S FIRST LADIES
Auburn University First Lady Nell Richardson earned a bachelor's
degree from A.U. in 1983 and taught English and French at Tuskegee
Institute High School, Opelika High School and Jeff Davis High School in
Montgomery. She also taught English at Southern Union and Alexander City
Community College. While working on a master's degree, she taught in
AU's Department of English. She earned an M.S. degree in English
Education in 1988. She retired from Montgomery Public Schools in 2004 to
join her husband in Auburn when he was named the university's president.
Mrs. Richardson's lecture will be drawn from research on the nine
families who have lived in the president's home since it was built by
Luther Duncan in 1939.
She will also address details of the house, including its setting,
garden, and furnishings. A special feature of the program will be the
unveiling of one or more portraits of former A.U. first ladies.
Date and Time: December 7 at 2 p.m.
Location: The Special Collections and Archives Department located on
the Ground Floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library.
Sponsored by: The Auburn University Libraries, The Center for Arts and
Humanities; Auburn University Outreach, and Auburn University
