James Glover 1882—1926

Ernest Jones

Following hard on Karl Abraham's death comes the news of the death of one of his most distinguished pupils. Our feelings at the later loss can only reanimate those of the earlier one, for there were many resemblances and associations between the two men beyond the important one of teacher and pupil. Glover's loss will in some ways be as keenly felt by his colleagues as Abraham's was, though in a smaller circle, and it constitutes, too, a similar set-back to the development of psycho-analysis, for he would certainly have played an important part in this had he lived.

James Glover was born at Lesmahagow, Lanarkshire, on July 15th, 1882, and died near Barcelona on August 25th, 1926. His father was a country schoolmaster of Lowland descent, and his son evidently inherited from him two of his most outstanding qualities: rare intellectual capacity and modest reserve. He had two younger brothers, but no sister. As a child he was shy, reserved and imaginative; he had a bent for writing and published his first short story when only fourteen years old. His educational career was a brilliant one, and he graduated as M.B., Ch.B. at the University of Glasgow at the early age of twenty-one.

His health was already at this time not satisfactory, and after making a few attempts to practise medicine he was prevailed on to take long sea voyages. For a time he practised in Brazil, where he showed some aptitude for surgery and tropical medicine, but the whole of his leisure was devoted to wide reading or to the writing of short stories which had some psychological interest.
