The latest addition to the Newman Numismatic Portal is
Andrew Pollock’s Tabular Guide to United States National Banks. Project Coordinator Len Augsburger provided the following report.
Andrew Pollock’s New Publications on United States National Banks, 1863-1935
Andrew Pollock III continues his research of U.S. National Banks with a five-volume series, Tabular Guide to United States National Banks. The first three volumes are now available on Newman Portal and will be indispensable to anyone studying the currency emissions of these institutions.
The first volume includes a bibliography for the series, to which Peter Huntoon contributed. The term “Bibliography” does not do the content justice, as this is actually a comprehensive and descriptive overview of the related literature.
Volumes two (Alabama to Montana) and three (Nebraska to Wyoming) provide a listing of the largest National Banks on a state and year-by-year basis. For each entry, Pollock cites the source, a welcome bit of information for readers who wish to dig more deeply into the subject. Pollock previously contributed datasets containing summary data for over 14,000 National Banks, and his work will no doubt be the standard reference for the foreseeable future.
