ON AN AFTERNOON in May 1966, John Glover, the first graduate of the Towson State University theater program, handed his father his freshly minted diploma and boarded a bus for New York City.This Saturday -- some 25 years later -- John Glover, Drama-Desk-award-winner and Emmy nominee, returns in triumph to Towson State to present a benefit show for the John Glover Scholarship Endowment for Acting Majors.The story line sounds almost too perfect, doesn't it? Of such stuff is press-release mythology made.

The glitter at the American Visionary Art Museum's 10th Anniversary Gala went beyond the newly installed mirror-mosaic Icarus sculpture, further than the gazillions of reflective discs dangling from table centerpieces set up for the party, and past the glitzy sequins and beads adorning a polka troupe dancing to the Tommy Thomas Trio's tunes. We're talking the glitterati scattered among the 400 guests. Former talk-show host Rosie O'Donnell and South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu were there, for starters.

Overheard at a recent matinee of "Love! Valour! Compassion!" at New York's Walter Kerr Theatre: "Wait until you see John Glover. You will see a performance this afternoon that's sure to win the Tony. . . . Glover gives a performance in this that will make you believe in the theater again."When these remarks are quoted to the Maryland-bred actor the next morning, he gives a little laugh and says, "I hope he's right."If Glover sounds less than certain of his chances of winning, it may be because modesty is part of his personality, according to C. Richard Gillespie, his former professor at Towson State University.
