Charles G. Dawes (1865-1951) was a United States politician who most notably served as Vice President of the United States under President Calvin Coolidge (1925-1929). He was at McKinley's side as US Comptroller of the Currency (1897-1902) when the President died in 1901, the victim of an assassin's bullet. Dawes organized and served as first President (1902-1921) and Chairman of the Board (1921-1925) of the Central Union Trust Co. In 1921, he became the first Director of the U.S. Bureau of the Budget. Two years later, he was president of the commission investigating the German budget and payments of war reparations. The commission created the "Dawes Plan" of reorganization and loans, which was in effect from 1924-1930. Dawes won the 1925 Nobel Peace Prize for the Dawes Plan. He served afterwards as US Ambassador to Britain. Dawes was a commissioned Brigadier General during WWI, serving overseas as an accounting expert and finances director for a number of different military departments. As Vice President, he was known for his tumultuous relationship with President Coolidge.
