Biographical / Historical
Samuel Glass was born Szymon Glaz on February 17, 1917 in what is now Voznesansk, Ukraine. He came to Atlanta as a child and graduated from Boys' High School in 1938. He was married to Florence Levine Glass (1918-2014), an Atlanta native. He later graduated from Atlanta Law School but decided to open the Star Shoe Store on Whitehall Street in Atlanta instead of practicing law. He owned the store until 1978. After his retirement, he made a hobby of "flipping" houses in the Atlanta area and also became part owner of numerous fast food restaurants. Sam and Florence were lifelong members of Ahavath Achim Synagogue. They later moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to live out their sunset years, where they were active in many community organizations. Sam Glass died in Fort Lauderdale on November 17, 2002 at the age of 85.
