Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
These personal papers of Frederic O. Glover pertain mostly to his writing and his interest in Stanford history; there are very few papers relating to his official activities as presidential aide. Included are oral history transcripts, correspondence, stories and articles, travel journals, speeches, class of 1933 reunion files, subject files, and photographs.
Frederic O. Glover enjoyed a long association with Stanford University. A member of the class of 1933, Glover returned to Stanford in 1946 as its first full-time director of information. In 1952 he moved to the President's office as assistant to President J.E. Wallace Sterling and was promoted in 1959 to executive assistant. He remained in the President's office under President Kenneth Pitzer, 1968-70, and then was appointed secretary to the university by President Richard W. Lyman. Glover retired in 1977 but remained active at Stanford as a founding member of the Stanford Historical Society and a member of the Stanford Associates. He also started the Stanford Oral History Project, a joint effort of the Stanford Historical Society and the Stanford University Archives. Fred Glover died of cancer on November 18, 1993.
