Welcome to this cyberplace, set up as a space for news and reviews of A Gentleman of Pleasure and occasional jottings about John Glassco. Five years have now passed since publication, and I've moved on to other projects, but I'm leaving this up with the thought that those drawn to Glassco's writing will find something of interest.

Edward Rawlings' Obituary

The obituary for Glassco's maternal grandfather, Edward Rawlings, published in The New York Times on 13 December 1911, the day after his death. The poet was not quite one year old when the old man died. At the age of twenty-five, Glassco inherited a small sliver of Rawlings' estate – more than enough to purchase Windermere, his 'White Mansion' in the Eastern Townships.
