Glenn, an alumna of the University of Chicago, entered Columbia Law School in 1944, earned her degree in 1947 and became an editor at the New York legal publisher Baker-Voorhis. She passed the bar exam in 1948 and was admitted to practice in 1949. At that time she left her editorial job, established a practice at 30 Broad Street in Manhattan with Edwin M. Bohm and Jacklyn V. Kemper and got engaged to a law-school classmate, J. Emery Long, who was a vice president of the Union Trust Company of Providence, Rhode Island. She married Long in 1950 and the newlyweds established a home in Providence. Items in this scrapbook include an invitation to a moot court, tickets to Columbia football games, the letter certifying Glenn's admission to the NY Bar, letterhead from her law firm on 30 Broad and holiday cards, wedding announcements and photographs of family and friends. The final few items record the early days of her marriage.
