Description

Certificate of marriage for Merrill Hart McGlamery and Julia Jane Galloway in Williamsburg, Virginia on December 24, 1944. McGlamery was living at the United States Naval Hospital at Fort Eustis, Virginia. The marriage certificate includes information about the bride and groom's age, race, number of times previously married, occupation, industry or business, birthplace, parents' full names, mailing address, and date and place of proposed marriage.

Merrill Hart McGlamery was born in 1924 in Tampa, Florida. He spent his childhood in Tampa and grew up in a large family. In January of 1943, he enlisted in the United States Army and then also served in the United States Marines. McGlamery served in a signal battalion, through which he took courses in radio operation. After his World War II-era service, McGlamery attended Davidson College and graduated Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa in 1948. He then re-enlisted in the military and served from 1949-1973. He had a long career as an engineer, including work for General Electric as an electronics engineer. McGlamery was also involved in the space program. He later returned to his home state of Florida and was living in Dunnellon when he passed away in 2000. McGlamery is memorialized at Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, Florida.

In 2017, the University of Central Florida was one of three universities selected to launch the National Cemetery Administration’s Veterans Legacy Program. The program engaged a team of scholars to make the life stories of veterans buried in the Florida National Cemetery available to the public. The project engages UCF students in research and writing and fosters collaboration between students, faculty and local Central Florida schools to produce interactive curriculum for k-12 students. The corresponding website exhibit uses RICHES Mosaic Interface to create a digital archive of related data. The public can use the project-developed augmented-reality app at more than 100 gravesites at the Florida National Cemetery, where they can access the UCF student-authored biographies of veterans.
