From: "Montreal History and Gazeteer to the year 1892"
By Rev. J. Douglas Borthwick, John Lovell & Son, Montreal 1892
Charles Glackmeyer was born in Montreal on the 22nd June, 1820. He followed a complete course of studies at the Montreal College under the auspices of the Gentlemen of the Seminary of St. Sulpice.
He studied Law under the late Messrs. Peltier & Bourret, and was admitted to the Bar on the 10th October, 1843. Two years after, in 1845, he entered the Corporation as Assistant City Clerk of Montreal, and on the 15th April, 1859, was appointed City Clerk—an office which he has continued to hold to the present day with perfect satisfaction to the various Mayors and Councils which have been since then.
Mr. Glackmeyer has rendered important service to the City on many occasions, and his services could ill be spared to the Corporation of Montreal. He is, in his official capacity, the right man in the right place.
