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 Association 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. Mr. Glessner is a member and former president of the Commercial Club of Chicago, and is also a member of the Chicago, Union League, Quadrangle and Literary Clubs. Mr. Glessner married in December, 1870, Frances, daughter of James R. and Nancy (Bayard) Macbeth. Residence: 1800 Prairie Ave., Chicago. Office address: Michigan Ave. and Harrison St., Chicago, Ill.

Greene, Edward Lee, educator and author of many works of systematic botany and botanical history of Washington, D.C., was born Aug. 20, 1843, in Hopkinton, R.I. An intense passion for study of plant life manifested- itself in earliest years; and only a new impulse was given to it by the removal of the family from R.I. to the prairie regions of Illinois, when the future botanist was in his twelfth year. In 1866 he received the Ph.B. degree at Albion College, Wisconsin, and at once entered into the occupation of teacher, and each year, for botany's sake, in a new field. As early as 1870 he had reached the Rocky Mountains in Colorado Territory, and while all spare time was given to botanical research in that very new field, he was prevailed on by friends to receive ordination to the Episcopal ministry. During the years between 1872 and 1885 he was engaged professionally in missionary work at stations in Colorado, Wyoming, California, Arizona and New Mexico, all the while in correspondence with eminent botanists, adding much to the knowledge of the native vegetation of all those stretches of new territory. In 1885 he was asked to take charge of the department of botany in the University of California. This chair he occupied until 1895, Then accepted the like situation in the Catholic University at Washington, D.C. The degree of LL.D. had been conferred by the University of Notre Dame in 1894. In 1904 he was made Honorary Associate in Botany under the auspices of the Smithsonian Institution. While at the California University he established the botanical journal "Erythea" and published his "Flora Franciscana," and also a "Manual of the Botany of the Region of San Francisco Bay." Other and very extensive contributions of new botanical knowledge are in five volumes entitled "Pittonia," and two volumes of "Leaflets of Botanical Observation." A more recent undertaking is a general history of his favorite science under the title of "Landmarks of Botanical History," of which the first volume is published, the second soon to appear.
