of Hibernians. President of Manassas Club. Address, 51 N. Royal St., Mobile, Ala. Glessner, John Jacob, manufacturer, was born at Zanesville,

0., in January, 1843, being a son of Jacob and Mary (Laughlin)

Glessner. He was educated in the public schools of Zanesville, and broadened his education by some years of work on the local newspapers of his native city. On attaining his majority, however, in 1864, he found his life’s vocation by engaging in the manufacture of harvesting machinery, becoming a member of the firm of Warder, Bushnell & Glessner. To the business of that firm he brought organizing abilities which were the leading factor in its success. In 1870 he removed to Chicago and

there established the administrative and executive headquarters '

of the business, retaining the factory at Springfield, 0., and as vice-president of the Warder, Bushnell & Glessner Co. built up a business of very extensive proportions in the Champion machines manufactured by the company. In the subsequent organization of the International Harvester Co. when the business of the Warder, Bushnell & Glessner Co. was combined with the McCormick, Deering and other large harvesting interests, he became vice-president of the company, and was elected to the position of chairman of the executive committee of that great corporation. Mr. Glessner’s executive abilities have been exercised not only in behalf of the business corporations with which he has been connected, but also, with much effectiveness, in measures for public benefit. He was president of the Citizens’ Association of Chicago during the period when that organization prepared the bill for the establishing of the Sanitary District of Chicago and secured its passage through the legislature of Illinois, and from the initiative efforts in which Mr. Glessner had so important a share has resulted the great Drainage Canal, which is the greatest engineering work ever undertaken by a city for the purposes of sanitation. He is a trustee of the Chicago Orphan Asylum, of Rush Medical College (now the medical department of the University of Chicago), the Chicago Orchestral Associa

tion which organized, sustained and has built a home for the '

Chicago Orchestra (of which the late Theodore Thomas was, until his death, the director), and of the Art Institute of Chicago.
