Businessman. One of the founders of the Glidden Paint Company. Glidden worked as a sailor and dry goods merchant in New England before a friend offered him a job as a salesman for a varnish company. He learned the trade and started the first vanish works in the Cleveland, Ohio area in 1868. In 1875, the original Glidden Varnish Company was formed. It remained a family-owned business until it was sold in 1915. (bio by: Mamaquilts)
