Named for Braxton Bragg Comer (1848-1927), Governor of Alabama (1907-1911).

As a member of the University's Corp of Cadets in 1865, Comer witnessed the burning of the campus by Federal troops. Later, as Governor, he strongly supported education and helped secure appropriations for the "Greater University Campaign," the first major expansion of the campus in the twentieth century.

Erected by University of Alabama.
