Bedford Glascock ('51)

“I learned everything I know about dairy farming at the University of Maryland, and I know my donation will help students continue to have top-notch learning experiences at the Campus Farm.”

Donation: $25,000 to name The Bedford Glascock ('51) Dairy Cow Facility

Bedford studied dairy science during his time at the University of Maryland. “We would bottle milk and make cream and cheese as part of our classes, and on Saturdays we would go to shows all over the state of Maryland,” Bedford says. Because of his ties to dairy science, the revitalized Campus Farm’s dairy cow facility in the dairy and livestock barn will be named in his honor.

Bedford grew up farming near the water in Solomons, Md., and remains an avid fisherman today. He currently lives in Florida with his wife, Barbara, who also graduated from the University of Maryland in 1961 with a degree in home economics. The couple enjoys visiting the university when they are in the area, and of course they always try to stop by the Campus Farm.
