Bertrand Glassberg (1902-1971) was born in St. Louis on May 26, 1902.  He attended Washington University for his undergraduate studies, earning his BS in 1923, and then completed his MD at Washington University School of Medicine in 1925.  He completed further graduate study at the University of Chicago, the University of Cincinnati, and the American Institute of Family Relations in Marriage Counseling and Family Problems. Glassberg maintained a private practice in marriage counseling and devoted himself to the field of family relations.

Glassberg was a resident and lecturer at Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago before returning to St. Louis in 1928 as an instructor in clinical medicine at Washington University School of Medicine.  He maintained this position for the rest of his career, earning emeritus status in 1969.  In addition, he participated in two weekly radio programs, a KSLH program on personality development and the KMOX program “Ask the Marriage Counselor.”  Glassberg’s publications include Know Yourself (1954) and Barron’s Teen-age Sex Counselor (1965), the latter of which discusses pregnancy, male and female physiology, and contraception.  Glassberg was also a prominent lecturer on the topics of marriage counseling, sexuality, and sex education.  He died in St. Louis on September 23, 1971.
