Edwin Gleaves fue mi profesor de Metodología de la Investigación en la Escuela Interamericana de Bibliotecología de la Universidad de Antioquia. Un verdadero enamorado de la profesión. Un místico inigualable y un gran docente. Su amor por la carrera lo llevó a convencer a muchos latinoamericanos para que se especializarán e hicieran su maestría en la Universidad de Nashville, Tenn. En donde él era el Decano del George Peabody College for Teachers (entre estos contamos a Uriel Lozano Rivera, Hernando Henao Jaramillo y Rodrigo Vega)
Nació el 28 de febrero de 1936 en Nashville (Tenn.) en el hogar formado por Edwin Sheffield Gleaves y Hazel Hunter de cuya unión hubo dos hijos: Edwin Sheffield Gleaves, Jr., y Robert Milnor Gleaves.
Edwin se casó con Georgia Louise Montandon el 30 de diciembre de 1958 en Nashville, Davidson County, de cuya unión nacieron Susan Kay Gleaves y David Hunter Gleaves.
El 20 de mayo de 1978 se casó en segundas nupcias con Janey Ann Thompson.
