Otis Ferguson Glenn (August 27, 1879 – March 11, 1959) was a Republican United States Senator from the State of Illinois.

He was born in Mattoon, Illinois on August 27, 1879. After graduating law school in 1900 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, he began practicing law in Murphysboro. He served as the State's Attorney for Jackson County from 1906 to 1908 and again from 1916 to 1920 when he was elected to the State Senate, serving there until 1924.

In 1928, when Frank L. Smith abandoned his efforts to take the U.S. Senate seat he had won in 1926, after twice having his credentials refused by the Senate, Glenn defeated future Chicago mayor Anton Cermak in a special election and served out Smith's term. When Glenn ran for a full term in 1932, he was defeated by William H. Dieterich. He ran, unsuccessfully, in 1936
