Glenn Thomas Trewartha (1896 – 1984)[1] was an American geographer of Cornish American descent.[2]

He graduated from the University of Wisconsin–Madison, with a Ph.D. in 1924. He taught at the University of Wisconsin.[3]

He gave an address to the Association of American Geographers, "A Case for Population Geography." He also wrote about climate, explaining that the atmosphere was like "a pane of glass in a greenhouse... thus maintaining surface temperatures considerably higher than they otherwise would be."[4][5]
