Charles Carroll Glover
Glover was named for his grandfather Charles Carroll, one of the first residents of Washington, DC. Glover was born in North Carolina, but moved to Washington, DC, to live with his grandmother when he was eight years old. As a young man, he started work at the bank Riggs and Company, rising to be a partner by 1873. When it became Riggs National Bank in 1896, Glover was president of the bank.
Glover personally donated land to be used as parkland. He was strongly committed to civic development in the District, pushing for the development of Rock Creek Park, the National Zoo, and reclaiming the Potomac Flats where many of the memorials of the National Mall currently reside.
