Glover, George W. (George Wright), d. 1918

George W. Glover studied in Germany and was a member of the staff at the University of Marburg, in Germany, before joining the Princeton University faculty to teach German. In June of 1915 Glover resigned from his position at Princeton and traveled to England to join the Allied war effort. Glover participated in the Somme Offensive as a Second Lieutenant of the Rifle Brigade and, in 1916, received the Distinguished Service Order for his actions in it.

The collection consists of letters written by Glover from England to his friend George Madison Priest (Princeton Class of 1894, professor of Germanic languages, 1912-1941) in Princeton, N.J., concerning the progress and details of World War I.

The letters are arranged chronologically.
