Nathaniel Glover Jr.

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Nathaniel Glover Jr., was born in Jacksonville, Florida back in 1943.  He attended the Jacksonville Public Schools.  He continued his education at Edward Waters College graduating in 1966.  After graduation, he was hired by the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office where he rose through the ranks becoming an Investigator in 1969. 

He graduated from the FBI National Academy’s 130the Session.  After he retired from the Sheriff’s Office he joined the Edward Waters College Board of Trustees as interim president. In 2011, it was made permanent.  He retired from that position in 2018.

What you may not know about Nathaniel “Nat” Glover is that he was the first African-American elected sheriff in Florida since the end of Reconstruction.  He won election in 1995 and again in 1999.

Good morning, James...Nathaniel may have been the first to be elected, but being reelected several more times proved he deserved the honor and knew what he was doing.

Well for Florida that was a big deal. In so many respects we are not the most progressive in the northern part of the state.

What amazes me is that the feat was not realized sooner by someone else, the 90's aren't too long ago in my mind.

Hello James - I was thinking about the comment by Nina Hollander.   Being elected is one thing but being reelected is something quite different.

Wow and he was allowed to go to the FBI academy? That is bigger news than how he ended up where he did. Love it, that is truly the American Dream in action, Endre

You must be working your way through the "g"s in your trivia selection.  This is a good one!  Having grown up in Gainesville in the early 60s I know that the state had its own race relations issue- his election truly was an accomplishment
