Biographical Note

Wiley Eugene Glaze was born in Pike, Texas on October 28, 1891. After graduating from Anson High School in 1911, he enrolled at the University of Texas, where he was appointed Student Assistant in Physical Training and Athletics in 1913. Glaze spent two years at UT and was then forced to withdraw due to financial circumstances. He taught school for two years, and then enlisted in the United States Army Air Corps in 1917 and became a pre-flight instructor. Following his discharge in 1919, he taught for two years at Oak Grove School, near Anson, Texas. In 1921, Glaze returned to the University of Texas to complete his degree in Business Administration, also working as a secretary to Professor L. Theo Bellmont. He married Kathleen Morrall in 1924, and they had one daughter, Kathleen Adele Glaze (Ables). After securing his B.B.A., Glaze was appointed an Instructor in Physical Training for Men in 1930. He advanced to Assistant Professor and eventually Associate Professor, a rank he held from 1954 until his retirement in 1962. While teaching full-time, he continued his education and earned an M.B.A. in 1932. He was also a devoted Mason, a charter member of University Lodge No. 1190 when it was organized in 1922, and its second Worshipful Master in 1923. Glaze died in Austin on January 8, 1968, at the age of 76.
