Mrs. Mary Glass Tyree
The death of Mrs. Mary Glass Tyree, widow of the late Walter Preston Tyree, Jr., at the age of 90 years, removes not only the oldest surviving descendant of the distinguished Edward Christian Glass, but brings memories and sorrow to many of the elder citizens of this area.

Mrs. Tyree has for so many years been a quiet, retiring person that her gentle presence has been missed. Her going brings back so many warm recollections of earlier days, or contemporaries of hers long gone, that it is difficult to adjust to the realities.

The mind moves back to so many scenes, so many persons, so many friends that were accompaniments of knowing Mrs. Tyree. It is like reviewing half of the history of Lynchburg as they come to mind, and thinking of so many men and women who occupied places of high accomplishment, of warm friendship, of interests as varied as the city itself.

To miss her now is to see how sweet was her image uopn the minds of those who knew her.

Letter from Neil Hammerstrom

Ed was a natural artist, but I doubt that he ever was serious enough to develop his talent beyond a certain point. Other traits such as his athletic ability were not compatible with being a typical artist. In his senior year in high school he was art editor of the school magazine called "The Critic" and also of our annual yearbook called "Critic Crest." (1932?) The theme of our annual was George Washington during the colonial era, and he illustrated various pages of figures in colonial attire. When he was in Farmville, VA on the tobacco market he made a drawing of the rotunda at State Teachers College (now named Longwood College), and they used this drawing reproduced on their mailings. Unfortunately, I don't know of any copies that exist today.

Billy (Carrington) says that Ed was the leader in their little gang. They had a football team in the neighborhood and Ed, naturally, was the captain.
