Rossell A. Glasgow, 67, a retired Veterans Administration lawyer, died Tuesday at the Washington Adventist Hospital after a heart attack.

He had served as a legal consultant to the board of veterans appeals at the VA here from the end of World War II until retiring in June, 1973.

Born in Washington, Mr. Glasgow was a graduate of National Law School, now part of George Washington University. During World War II, he served as a gunnery officer with the Army Air Corps.

He was a member of the D.C. and Federal Bar Associations.

Mr. Glasgow was a life member of St. Matthew's Episcopal Church in Hyattsville.

He is survived by his wife, Louise Glasgow, and four children, Rossell A. Jr., Janice, George and Gail, all of the home in Takoma Park; another daughter, Margaret Cummings, of College Park; a sister, Clara Henneber, of Silver Spring; nine brothers, George, of Washington; Augustus, of Hyattsville: Francis of Kent Island, Md.; Frederick, of Takoma Park; Charles and Raymond, both of College Park; Norman, of Potomac; Louis, of Clarksville, and William, of Silver Spring, and a grandchild.

The family suggests that expressions of sympathy be in the form of contributions to St. Matthews Church.
