The Amelia Gayle Gorgas Chapter 2117 was chartered on
March 26, 1941. It was named for Amelia Gayle Gorgas,
daughter of John Gayle, the sixth governor of Alabama; wife
of Confederate General Josiah Gorgas; and mother of Dr.
William Crawford Gorgas, known for conquering yellow
fever in Cuba and the Panama Canal. She was the first
female librarian at the University of Alabama and the main
library on campus is named for her.
Meetings are held on the second Thursday from October to
