April 25 The April, 1916, Saint Vincent Journal noted that an alum, Rev. Thomas J. Glynn, '87-'93, was an inventive genius. He made a buoyant hydro-gravity motor, able to generate power on ship and land and operate a ship on any kind of fuel. A few years previously, he made a hand starter for automobiles. But, the article noted, "what is highly noteworthy of Father Glynn is that he places his devices at the disposal of all for the greater public utility."
