GLYER, Richard T. II -- Professor Emeritus at San Francisco State University,
died Friday, April 3, 1998. 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. Retirement
Association. His creativity and passion for designing and building led him
to rebuild two family homes in San Francisco, as well as a summer home in
Nevada County. Dr. Glyer is survived by his wife Helen (Polly) Glyer of San
Francisco; and son, Todd of Foster City. Friends will gather 'To Remember'
at the San Francisco State University Club at 2:30 P.M. on Friday, April 17,
