Biographical / Historical
This collection is comprised of Washington family genealogy research conducted by Justin Glenn for his books, “The Washingtons: A
Family History". The books are a comprehensive multi-volume work covering fifteen generations of the "Presidential Branch" of the Washingtons. This study includes more than 63,000 descendants of the immigrant John Washington, who settled in Westmoreland County, Virginia, in 1657, married Anne Pope, and became the great-grandfather of President George Washington.
The author, Justin Matthews Glenn, was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, and raised in Glendale and Phoenix, Arizona. He graduated from Stanford University (B.A., Classics, 1967; magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa) and was a Woodrow Wilson Fellow at Princeton University (M.A., Classics, 1969; Ph.D., Classics, 1970). His career as a professor of Classics at the University of Georgia and Florida State University spanned thirty-five years, and he has published over seventy articles, notes, and reviews in his field. A distant cousin of George Washington, he has served as Registrar General of the National Society of the Washington Family Descendants since 2002.
