Professional Wrestling Career
Glass was trained by The Fabulous Moolah at her wrestling school in South Carolina. She first appeared at Moolah's door in 1961 at the age of seventeen, wanting to be trained as a professional wrestler. Moolah would not accept Glass until her mother signed a permission slip. Due to Moolah's love of diamonds and Glass's small stature, she was given the ring name Diamond Lil.
Throughout the 1960s, Glass frequently wrestled against fellow female midget wrestler Darling Dagmar. Glass teamed with Ann Casey during a match in June 1971, which they lost to Dagmar and Vicki Williams. In the late 1970s, she had several matches against female midget star Princess Little Dove.
Glass eventually retired as a professional wrestler due to a scarcity of little person opponents on the independent circuit.

Famous quotes containing the words career, professional and/or wrestling:
“I doubt that I would have taken so many leaps in my own writing or been as clear about my feminist and political commitments if I had not been anointed as early as I was. Some major form of recognition seems to have to mark a womans career for her to be able to go out on a limb without having her credentials questioned.”
—Ruth Behar (b. 1956)
“Never be intimidated when you deal with men. Curse, dont cry.”
—Anonymous, U.S. professional woman. As quoted in Aspirations and Mentoring in an Academic Environment, ch. 4, by Mary Niles Maack and Joanne Passet (1994)
“We laugh at him who steps out of his room at the very moment when the sun steps out, and says: I will the sun to rise; and at him who cannot stop the wheel, and says: I will it to roll; and at him who is taken down in a wrestling match, and says: I lie here, but I will that I lie here! And yet, all laughter aside, do we ever do anything other than one of these three things when we use the expression, I will?”
—Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900)
