Henry P. Glass was born in Vienna, Austria, in 1911. He graduated from the Architectural School of the Vienna Technical university in 1933 and earned a master's degree in architecture from the same institution in 1935. Glass practiced architecture in Vienna until 1939, at which time he emigrated to the United States. He first lived in New York City, working for prominent architects and industrial designers. Then, in 1942, Glass moved to Chicago. He worked in the architectural design department of W.L. Stensgaard until 1945, when he started his own firm, Henry P. Glass Associates. In 1951, he became business partners with Louis H. Huebner. Glass taught industrial design at The School of the Art Institute for twenty-one years between 1945 and 1967. He was also made a Fellow of the Industrial Designers Society of America, formerly the Industrial Designers Institute, and held the offices of National Vice President and Chicago Chapter Chairman. Glass's work was featured in the exhibition, "Design from the Heartland: Henry Glass, John Polivka, and Richard Ten Eyck," on view at The Art Institute of Chicago in 1999-2000. Glass died in Northfield, Illinois, in 2003.
