Athens StoryCorps: Gwendolyn and Dr. Robert Bottoms


Growing up in Birmingham, Alabama, Dr. Robert Bottoms could not have imagined that he would one day be the president of a university hundreds of miles away. In this conversation, Dr. Bottoms tells his wife Gwendolyn about the teachers and mentors who helped shape his childhood and led him to have a successful career. StoryCorps Athens stories were recorded locally at the StoryCorps mobile booth at the Athens-Clarke County Library in the Fall of 2018. StoryCorps is part of a national initiative to record and preserve the stories of everyday people. All of the interviews were produced locally by Morgan Frey.
