Glenn Wesley Vogelgesang, one of the city’s most prominent attorney’s, died on October 13 at the age of 88. He had won national recognition for a law career that spanned over half a century, including the highest awards given by the American Bar Association and the American College of Trial Lawyers. He was active in many activities in the Canton area, particularly with the Church of the Savior United Methodist. Mr. Vogelgesang was born in Lorain, Ohio on February 10, 1912. He was the son of Edith Weidler and Charles Wesley Vogelgesang. After living briefly in Lorain and Cleveland, they moved to Canton in 1915, where Mr. Vogelgesang became a life long resident. He graduated from Canton McKinley High School in 1929, where he was a member of the National Honor Society and the Varsity Debate Team. Miss Florence Willett, one of his teachers, became a special mentor who encouraged him in public speaking and his eventual legal career. In 1933, he graduated from the College of Wooster in Wooster, OH. A chemistry major, he was named to Phi Beta Kappa and won the most prestigious prizes in oratory. After attending one year at the Cornell University Law School, he transferred to the Law School at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and graduated with a Doctorate of Jurisprudence in 1936. Mr. Vogelgesang worked as an attorney for over 50 years, from 1936 to 1987. He was admitted to the Bar for Stark County, the State of Ohio, and the Supreme Court of the United States in 1936. Former Congressman Henderson Carson introduced him to the U. S. Supreme Court. He began his practice in 1936 with the law firm of Herbruck, Shetler and Roach in Canton and served as a member of the faculty for the McKinley Law School, 1936-41. In 1955, he founded the law firm of Vogelgesang, Howes, Lindamood and Brunn.

He served in that capacity from 1957 to 1965. He was Solicitor for the Village of Meyers Lake from 1953 to 1987. He entered semi-retirement from active practice in 1987. The highlight of Mr. Vogelgesang’s career came when two special honors were conferred in the late 1950’s. First, he was named a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers in a special ceremony in Beverly Hills, California recognizing his achievements as among the highest in American jurisprudence. Membership in the Fellowship is limited to one per cent of the attorneys in any state of the United States. Second, he received the Award of Merit, the highest recognition accorded by the American Bar Association, in a ceremony in Dallas, Texas. In addition to his legal career, Mr. Vogelgesang engaged in a wide range of activities in the Canton Community. He was a life long member of the Church of the Savior United Methodist. He founded the Glenn W. Vogelgesang Family Church Trust to help promote educational and social programs in Canton. He served as a member of the Board of Trustees for the Church and taught Sunday School for many years. His other professional affiliations included membership in the Canton Chamber of Commerce, the Canton Club, the Board of Managers of the Central Branch of the Canton YMCA, Boy Scouts of America and the Wilderness Center. He was interested in politics throughout his life, serving several times as campaign manager for Republican candidates for public office. Beyond these professional and community achievements, many remember Mr. Vogelgesang most as a man who put his family first.
