Mr. Glass also was a former vice president of the chamber. He had been a chairman of the promotions committee for CBA and the prime mover in the Chester Arts Festival. A Mason, he was also a member of Har Zion Temple, and Theodore Roosevelt Lodge of Brith Sholom, both in Philadelphia.
The city merchant was an amateur painter in oils and had received awards from the Graphic Sketch Club of Philadelphia along with his wife, Cecilia.
Surviving are his wife, the former Cecilia Lovenstein and a brother, Lester Glass of Los Angeles, Calif.
