Greetings Banker's Notes Subscribers!
Since moving to North Carolina in 2014, you may have noticed a slowdown in Banker's Notes posts, and by slowdown I mean complete cessation (Sad!). Well, that's changing somewhat! Starting this month, I will be contributing bimonthly articles on the history of banking in America to the ABA Banking Journal.
For those of you unfamiliar with the ABA Banking Journal, let me take this opportunity to share with you a little of its history. The American Bankers Association (ABA) was founded in 1875, and today is the largest trade organization for the financial services industry in the United States. With its first publication in 1908, the ABA Banking Journal is the ABA's flagship magazine that "provides insights that help banking leaders succeed in the competitive financial services market."
I will be contributing articles to the 'From the Vault' column. Other contributors include John Steele Gordon.
My first contribution was published this past Thursday, and you can read it by clicking HERE. It's a story about a bank in Peru, Indiana that was founded by a circus.
If you have comments/questions or just want to re-connect, I would love to hear from you!
With all my bankerly love,
