Dr. Glyer, a native of Brooten, Minnesota, moved, at a young age with his parents, to Mountain View, California. He attended San Jose State College for two years before starting his theatrical career at Cape Cod, Massachusetts. During the depression he was a member of the Federal Theater Group, acting and directing. He worked as an engineer in the early days of the Kaiser Corporation. During World War II he was employed as a disc jockey at several San Francisco radio stations. He was active in several Bay Area theater groups, The Actors' Workshop, and A.C.T. as well as motion pictures and television. He was also in demand for his theatrical make-up skills. Mr. Glyer was a long-time member of the Bohemian Club. He graduated from the University of Southern California, and received his M.A. and doctoral degrees from Stanford University. Professor Glyer taught in the Theater Arts Department at San Francisco State University from 1947 until his retirement in 1975. He served two terms as president of the S.F.S.U.

Friends will gather 'To Remember' at the San Francisco State University Club at 2:30 P.M. on Friday, April 17, 1998.
