W. L. GLASCOCK
Mr. Glascock is principal of the San Mateo Union School. This short statement is perhaps the most interesting fact in Mr. Glascock’s life; and is the keynote to his chosen vocation,—education.
He was born in Indiana, and has been a resident of California for a period of seventeen years, four of which have been spent in San Mateo with the school department of that city.
Mr. Glascock graduated from the University of Indiana, in Bloomington, with the degree of A. B., having worked his way through that college.
His next move was to come out to California and take up post graduate work at Stanford University, where he graduated with his master’s degree in 1906.
Mr. Glascock is president of the California Scholastic Federation; Secretary of the California Teachers’ Association and a member of the California Teachers’ Council. He belongs to the San Mateo Lodge No. 226 of the F. & A. Masons; B.P.O.E. No. 1112 and the Sigma Chi fraternity at Indiana, Lambda Chapter, and the Alpha Omega Chapter of this fraternity at Stanford.
