- While I know next to nothing about company towns in the
Birmingham district, Dr. David Lewis at Auburn University or Dr.
Marlene Rikard at Samford University might be able to assist you.
Both are extremely knowledgable about this subject. You also
might try someone at Sloss Furnaces or at the Birmingham

I covered Alabama from 19995 to 1999 as a diplomat responsible for
attracting Alabamese investment in my country. But I had the privilege to
attend the 300 anniversary of the foundation of Biloxi in February 1999 in
Mississippi and discovered that Mobile's anniversary was coming soon. There
is a French era in Alabama's development that I am curious to know and as
well now the influx of Latinos is most interesting to fathom as it will
shape the future of this great State. The Civil War or the War of the States
is another era that fascinates me. The influence of the African-American
heritage, constructions, food, music, as well is incredible to discover. I
am always confounded by the inventiveness and the resilience demonstrated by
the Confederate armies whose desperate efforts are admirable but led to the
United States of America as we know them today. Fascinating as well the fact
that after such a terrible war all Alabamans are today to the fullest very
proud to be identified to USA. And I have not mentioned the mysterious
hills, and other fabulous places that this Great State holds. The rich
Indian past with so many tribes that D'Iberville mentioned in his reports.
Hence my signature to know more.
