5 May 1980 — Orlando Sentinel, by Charlie Wadsworth

+++++“Mrs. Helen Glover died last week at the age of 90. She was a tiny, dynamic soul who became restless and moved from homes to apartments and back to homes after her husband died several years ago.
+++++She was a delightful lawyer who practiced before the Supreme Court [?] and earned her legal spurs.
+++++Her background? She never found out who her parents were. She was an orphan and was raised by a physician named Hamilton and his wife. She called him ‘Uncle Doc’ and accepted him as her father. It’s simply another case of the story behind an obituary, and I find the story of Helen Glover fascinating.”

NOTE: The 1910 United States Federal Census lists Ms. Henderson’s parents as George and Josephine Henderson. This is a mystery.


+++++Helen A Glover listed in Helena, Montana, City Directory, 1918, as “Lawyer.”

+++++Husband practiced law in Great Falls, Montana, and then later became Chairman of the board of directors of the Anaconda Company.
