From the collection of Dr. Edward Glaser, a native of Austria, who studied at the University of Vienna and—after emigrating to the United States and spending two years in the U.S. Army during World War II—Wayne University. He earned his doctorate at Harvard and remained there to teach until moving to the University of Michigan in 1959. Prof. Glaser, an enthusiastic scholar of Spanish and Portuguese literature, quickly became an integral part of Michigan’s Romantic Languages department. He received a Guggenheim fellowship and was appointed to the advisory board of the Hispanic Review and editorial boards of several scholarly journals, all while keenly interested in both field research and his students, to whom he was deeply committed. Prof. Glaser was an internationally recognized authority in his field, especially in the Spanish Golden Age, the Biblical drama, and the literary relations between Spain and Portugal, and published several articles and books on these subjects.
