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.

As Vice President, he was known for his tumultuous relationship with President Coolidge. Caro Blymyer married Charles Dawes in 1889 and together they raised four children. She was active in charitable work, but tried to limit her involvement in the Washington social scene during her time in the nation's capital. Strings at edges. Irregular edges. Ink has bled.
