James Henry Glenn III ’51

Published in the Apr.23, 2008, issue

Jim was born March 11, 1929, in Philadelphia, raised in Meadowbrook, Pa., and came to us from the William Penn Charter School. He roomed with Charlie Ganoe, George Nesbitt, and Woozy Supplee, and after freshman year, he transferred to Amherst, where he studied economics and history and earned a bachelor’s in 1951.

He served as a lieutenant on board the USS Baltimore until 1955, when he went to work for McCormick and Co., the spice dealers, and became a regional sales manager. In 1961 he established Chesapeake Food Brokers, which later became the Chesapeake Randall Co. He was its CEO until several years ago, when he sold the business.

Jim’s hobby was thoroughbred racing: His horse, Jorgie Stover, came in third in the Maryland Million at Laurel Park. He was president of Big Brothers of Baltimore from 1967 to 1970, and served as a trustee of St. Paul’s School from 1970 to 1980.

Jim died Oct. 10, 2007, of colon cancer. He is survived by his wife, the former Catherine Boone; their son, Michael; their daughter, Dana Larrabee; and four grandchildren.
