Biographical / Historical

Glenn Titus honed his skills on a typewriter and with still and motion-picture cameras before taking a job as a cinematographer and still photographer with the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department. Titus is well known for taking film footage of rare South Dakota black-footed ferrets. Titus moved on to lead the information-education division with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation in 1964. A few years later he left the job to become the outdoor editor with Oklahoma City’s Daily Oklahoman, where he gave outdoorsmen a prominent voice in sports coverage and kept them abreast of the tangled politics surrounding wildlife management in the state. He went on to spend much of his career as a freelance writer and editor. In 2018 he lives in Troy, Montana.
