Philip Glasgo: Xavier University professor killed in ATV accident

CINCINNATI – A Xavier University finance professor and self-described  “gentleman farmer” died after his ATV overturned on his property in Guilford, Ind., a university spokesperson confirmed Tuesday.

Family members found Philip Glasgo, 66, unconscious under the ATV on Monday, Indiana Conservation officers said. He had gone out to check fencing around his cattle pasture on his farm about 20 miles west of Cincinnati.

Glasgo taught at Xavier for 30 years after teaching at the University of Cincinnati for 12 years. He had an undergraduate degree in mathematics from Ohio University and an MBA and Ph.D. in finance from Ohio State. Before graduate school he worked for National City Bank and was a U.S. Army Air Defense Artillery Officer. 

At Xavier Glasgo led Executive MBA class trips to Europe and Asia. He also published a book about savings and loans and was a consultant to Cincinnati area businesses.

Glasgo was an elder at Northminster Presbyterian Church in Finneytown since 1986 and a deacon at Kenwood Baptist Church before that. He had served on the 

board of directors of Presbyterian Child Welfare Agency.

His biography on the Xavier website described him, in his own words, as “a mediocre but avid golfer.”

Glasgo leaves his wife Dana and two children.
