Glover, Jose, d. 1638, English nonconformist minister, generally considered the father of printing in the English colonies of North America. He visited New England c.1634 and on his return to England solicited support for what became Harvard College. He also bought a printing press and equipment and contracted for the services of Stephen Daye and his household (including Matthew Daye). Glover died on the voyage to America. His wife came into control of the printing equipment, and Stephen and Matthew Daye worked for her.
