GLOVER, Joseph, physician, born about 1780; died in Charleston, South Carolina, about 1840. He was graduated in the medical department of the University of Pennsylvania in 1800, and in that year became a member of the medical society of South Carolina. He was active in establishing a free dispensary in 1801, and gave his services gratuitously to the poor, receiving a vote of thanks from the trustees in 1805. Among his suggestions which the medical society made to the City council was that of planting trees, the sanitary advantages of which he showed in his report in 1808. Dr. Glover was noted for fearlessness and skill as a surgeon, he successfully performed lithotomy, removed a portion of the spleen and the omentum, and was one of the first in this country to revive the operation of tapping the head for hydrocephalus. A description of the case was published in pamphlet-form (1818), and was widely quoted.
