According to a newspaper article, Captain James L. Glascock of Plainfield, age 84, a veteran of the Spanish-American War and World War I, had enrolled in a sociology course at Canterbury College in Danville. He and his son Wheatley Glascock were residents at the county home. The college refused to accept his tuition payment, instead giving him an honorary scholarship. He was a past commander of the American Legion, the oldest member of their Nysewander-Bayliff Post, and had served as a military instructor at the Indiana Boys' School in Plainfield during the administration of C.A. McGonagle.

NOTE: Captain James L. Glascock died in October 1950.
