Pecora (1882-1971) was an attorney and later judge whose investigations of Wall Street--first while serving as legal counsel for New Jersey's Senate Banking and Currency Committee and then as a member of the newly-established Securities and Exchange Commission--led to important reforms enacted by the Glass-Steagall Banking Act (1933), the Securities Act (1933), and the Public Utility Holding Company Act (1935).
