Judy L. Bonner became the first woman president of the University of Alabama on Thursday, a day after the previous president stepped down after less than two months on the job. Trustees named Dr. Bonner, a longtime professor and administrator at the university, effective immediately. The university had named Guy H. Bailey as president in July, and he took office in early September, but he resigned Wednesday, citing his wife's illness.
