Hide Profile

Charles Gates Dawes (1865-1951), financier, diplomat, and Vice President of the United States, was born in Marietta, Ohio, on August 27, 1865. A graduate of Cincinnati Law School, he practiced law in Lincoln, Nebraska, from 1887 to 1894 and also became involved in banking. In 1889, he married Caro Blymyer. The Dawes had two children and later adopted two more. In 1895, Dawes moved to Chicago to oversee his utility interests. He managed William McKinley's presidential campaign and later served as Comptroller of the Treasury. In 1902, Dawes became president of the successful Central Trust Company. During World War One, he was general purchasing agent for the American Expeditionary Forces in France and a member of the Military Board of Allied Supply. He left the military as a brigadier general. Under President Harding, Dawes reduced government expenditures as the first director of the Bureau of the Budget. He chaired the Committee of Experts of the Allied Reparations Commission and his contribution to a reparations plan for Germany (Dawes Plan, 1924) earned him a shared Nobel Peace prize in 1925. Dawes served as Vice President under Calvin Coolidge (1925-1929) and as Ambassador to the Court of St. James (1929-1932). In 1932, President Hoover appointed him to direct the Reconstruction Finance Corporation. Dawes published several volumes from his journals and remained active in business and philanthropy until his death on April 23, 1951.
