Harrington E. Manville's Biographical Dictionary of British and Irish Numismatics (vol. 4) entry for Douglas Glendining (1863-1951) notes "British Numismatic Society founder-member. A turn-of-the-century war medal collector who left a position with Lloyds Insurance Co. in 1900 to establish the auction house of Glendining & Co. in King William Street – moving to 7 Argyll Street in 1905. At this time Sotheby’s had established almost a monopoly on the sale of important numismatic collections and Glendining’s struggled somewhat at first. Gradually however, partly through Glendining’s personal attention to collector needs and partly through the reported anti-Sotheby co-operation of S.M. Spink in the 1920s, the firm gradually overtook its rival and by the 1930s had established a practical monopoly in its turn. After the founder’s death in 1951, William C. (‘Bill’) French (1919-1986) effectively managed the firm until his own death."
