Glass served in the House of Representatives and Senate from 1902 to 1946 and was known as the "Father of the Federal Reserve System" in recognition of which his likeness appears on the $50,000 Treasury note. Glass was a co-sponsor of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933. In 1941, he was sworn in as President Pro-Tem of the U.S. Senate on the sun porch of Montview.
