Biography/History

Eduard Glaser (1855–1908) was a scholar, archaeologist, and explorer. Born in Deutsch-Rust (Czech Republic), Glaser was one of the leading 19th century scholarly researchers in south Arabia and the pioneer of Sabaean studies and pre-Islamic history. His thorough knowledge of the Arabic language, of Oriental customs, and especially of Islam was the secret of his research success. His journeys through Yemen represent some of the most important scholarly research ever carried out in this part of the world. Despite great financial problems and dangers, he undertook four expeditions to Yemen between 1882 and 1895, disguised as a Muslim. He reached remote historical places in Yemen never visited before by Western scholars, such as Mārib, the capital of the ancient Kingdom of Sheba. The southern Arabian inscriptions he collected are of fundamental importance for all research on ancient Yemen. The analysis of his still unpublished scholarly works is far from finished. The collection of almost 660 objects from southern Arabia that he brought back from his fourth journey into Yemen in 1895 formed the nucleus of the "Oriental" or Near Eastern section in the Kunsthistorischen Museum in Vienna; he also brought hundreds of Yemeni-Arabic manuscripts to the National Library in Vienna. He was a great lover of the Jewish people and the Zionist movement. He corresponded with Herzl and proposed to him the establishment of the Jewish state in Yemen. In Sana he became close to the local Jewish scholar, R. Yihye Kafah and strengthened his enlightened attitude toward the Jewish religion. In a series of articles published in the REJ, written as a part of his spirited debate with fellow Yemenite scholar Joseph Halévy, Glaser expressed his uncompromising view that the pre-Islamic Himyari kingdom was indeed a Jewish kingdom, based on his interpretation of some on the inscriptions he found in Yemen. (Biography based on Encyclopedia Judaica, 2nd ed., 2007)

Biography/History

Martin Meyerson was the fifth president of the University of Pennsylvania, from 1970-1981, and was associated with Penn for over fifty years. With his background in city planning, he brought a unique perspective to the university, focusing on producing cutting-edge research to benefit society.

He began his academic career in 1948 at the University of Chicago before coming to Penn in 1952 as an associate professor of city and regional planning. In 1957, he left for Harvard University and later served as dean of the College of Environmental Design at the University of California at Berkeley. While at Berkeley, he served as acting chancellor during the student unrest of the Free Speech movement. He then served as president of the State University of New York at Buffalo before returning to Penn as president in 1970. During his tenure, which lasted until 1981, he oversaw the consolidation of several colleges and programs into the School of Arts and Sciences.

After leaving the presidency, Meyerson remained active at Penn as University Professor of Public Policy Analysis and City and Regional Planning and as chair of the University of Pennsylvania Foundation, the University of Pennsylvania Press, the Institute for Research on Higher Education, and the Monell Chemical Senses Center. He was also co-chair of Penn's 250th anniversary celebration. Meyerson also served on the boards of the Mahoney Institute of Neurological Sciences, the Lauder Institute of Management and International Studies, and the Institute for Strategic Threat Analysis and Response. He also chaired the University's Fels Center of Government program until February 1996. With his wife, Margy, he was co-president of the Friends of the Library, in which capacity they served on the Library's Board of Overseers.

As an expert on national, regional, urban, and industrial development, Meyerson was a United Nations advisor and delegate, as well as a consultant to several West African nations and to the Governor of the Tokyo Metropolitan Area. He founded London's Centre for Environmental Studies and Japan's International Centre for the Study of East Asian Development and was an advisor to France's Institut National de la Communication Audiovisuelle. He served as Chair of the International Institute for Education and President of the International Association of Universities and held leadership positions with dozens of American organizations dedicated to urban affairs, education, science, foreign policy, conservation, and the arts. He served on several White House task forces and on the councils of a number of government agencies.

His books included Politics, Planning, and the Public Interest,  Housing, People, and Cities,  The Conscience of the City, and  Boston: The Job Ahead. With Dr. Dilys Winegrad, director and curator of the Arthur Ross Gallery, he wrote  Gladly Learn and Gladly Teach, a history of Penn. He also co-authored  Face of the Metropolis.

(Excerpts from University of Pennsylvania News, "Death of President Emeritus Martin Meyerson" June 6, 2007).

Biography/History

Eduard Glaser (1855–1908) was a scholar, archaeologist, and explorer. Born in Deutsch-Rust (Czech Republic), Glaser was one of the leading 19th century scholarly researchers in south Arabia and the pioneer of Sabaean studies and pre-Islamic history. His thorough knowledge of the Arabic language, of Oriental customs, and especially of Islam was the secret of his research success. His journeys through Yemen represent some of the most important scholarly research ever carried out in this part of the world. Despite great financial problems and dangers, he undertook four expeditions to Yemen between 1882 and 1895, disguised as a Muslim. He reached remote historical places in Yemen never visited before by Western scholars, such as Mārib, the capital of the ancient Kingdom of Sheba. The southern Arabian inscriptions he collected are of fundamental importance for all research on ancient Yemen. The analysis of his still unpublished scholarly works is far from finished. The collection of almost 660 objects from southern Arabia that he brought back from his fourth journey into Yemen in 1895 formed the nucleus of the "Oriental" or Near Eastern section in the Kunsthistorischen Museum in Vienna; he also brought hundreds of Yemeni-Arabic manuscripts to the National Library in Vienna. He was a great lover of the Jewish people and the Zionist movement. He corresponded with Herzl and proposed to him the establishment of the Jewish state in Yemen. In Sana he became close to the local Jewish scholar, R. Yihye Kafah and strengthened his enlightened attitude toward the Jewish religion. In a series of articles published in the REJ, written as a part of his spirited debate with fellow Yemenite scholar Joseph Halévy, Glaser expressed his uncompromising view that the pre-Islamic Himyari kingdom was indeed a Jewish kingdom, based on his interpretation of some on the inscriptions he found in Yemen. (Biography based on Encyclopedia Judaica, 2nd ed., 2007)

Biography/History

Martin Meyerson was the fifth president of the University of Pennsylvania, from 1970-1981, and was associated with Penn for over fifty years. With his background in city planning, he brought a unique perspective to the university, focusing on producing cutting-edge research to benefit society.

He began his academic career in 1948 at the University of Chicago before coming to Penn in 1952 as an associate professor of city and regional planning. In 1957, he left for Harvard University and later served as dean of the College of Environmental Design at the University of California at Berkeley. While at Berkeley, he served as acting chancellor during the student unrest of the Free Speech movement. He then served as president of the State University of New York at Buffalo before returning to Penn as president in 1970. During his tenure, which lasted until 1981, he oversaw the consolidation of several colleges and programs into the School of Arts and Sciences.

After leaving the presidency, Meyerson remained active at Penn as University Professor of Public Policy Analysis and City and Regional Planning and as chair of the University of Pennsylvania Foundation, the University of Pennsylvania Press, the Institute for Research on Higher Education, and the Monell Chemical Senses Center. He was also co-chair of Penn's 250th anniversary celebration. Meyerson also served on the boards of the Mahoney Institute of Neurological Sciences, the Lauder Institute of Management and International Studies, and the Institute for Strategic Threat Analysis and Response. He also chaired the University's Fels Center of Government program until February 1996. With his wife, Margy, he was co-president of the Friends of the Library, in which capacity they served on the Library's Board of Overseers.

As an expert on national, regional, urban, and industrial development, Meyerson was a United Nations advisor and delegate, as well as a consultant to several West African nations and to the Governor of the Tokyo Metropolitan Area. He founded London's Centre for Environmental Studies and Japan's International Centre for the Study of East Asian Development and was an advisor to France's Institut National de la Communication Audiovisuelle. He served as Chair of the International Institute for Education and President of the International Association of Universities and held leadership positions with dozens of American organizations dedicated to urban affairs, education, science, foreign policy, conservation, and the arts. He served on several White House task forces and on the councils of a number of government agencies.

His books included Politics, Planning, and the Public Interest,  Housing, People, and Cities,  The Conscience of the City, and  Boston: The Job Ahead. With Dr. Dilys Winegrad, director and curator of the Arthur Ross Gallery, he wrote  Gladly Learn and Gladly Teach, a history of Penn. He also co-authored  Face of the Metropolis.

(Excerpts from University of Pennsylvania News, "Death of President Emeritus Martin Meyerson" June 6, 2007).

Scope and Contents

The Eduard Glazer Manuscript Collection consists of four folders, consisting mostly of offprints as well as some correspondence and manuscript material by Glaser himself. The collection also contains correspondence from S. Glaser, Eduard's brother, who ultimately sold the collection to Dropsie.

The initial collection contained approximately 450 volumes of Glaser’s books, which have since been incorporated into the Library’s collections. In addition, three manuscripts (#71, 72, and 74) were originally part of this collection but have been added to the Rare Ms collection.
