A mechanical and aeronautical engineer, not really remembered as a driver, Glover was more behind the scenes, firstly as Mercer
team manager, and then found fame by developing the two speed rear axle which would be adopted by Ford’s Model T trucks. While
he had been involved in automobile racing, aviation was his main interest. He became head of the Hall Scott Airplane department,
before setting up his own manufacturing company, being closely intertwined with Ford. A licensed pilot and engine mechanic,
he founded the company, Grand Canyon-Boulder Dam Tours, which was the first enterprise to provide comprehensive tourist services.
