George was interviewed for this UK-based collecting magazine shortly after he opened the George Glazer Gallery.  Excerpts below:

"'American globes are a fascinating area but I am quite shocked that no-one has specialised in them before--I suppose it's because the subject matter is so esoteric,' he explained. 'There is a lot more to a globe than just an object. The people who made them and the social and historical context in which they were constructed are both important...'

"George...has achieved a great deal in a short time. With his enthusiasm and optimism he should be a great asset to the map world.'"
