Steagall, Henry Bascom

(1873-1943)
   Born in Clopton, Alabama, Henry Steagall attended Southeast Alabama Agricultural School and then the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa. He graduated with a degree in law in 1893 and practiced in Ozark. In 1898, he was appointed county solicitor, and in 1906 he served one term in the state legislature. In 1914, he was elected as a Democratic representative to Congress and served until his death. Steagall became chair of the House Committee on Banking and Currency in 1930 and helped establish the Reconstruction Finance Corporation. He was cosponsor of the 1933 Glass-Steagall Act that separated investment banking from commercial banking. Steagall supported President Franklin D. Roosevelt and the New Deal and helped push through the Banking Acts of the “First Hundred Days.” During the war, he maintained a watching brief on the impact of wartime controls on agriculture.
