When FINRA hosted their board dinner at The Historical Society of Pennsylvania, displays in the Reading Room tapped into the history of banking in America. There were drawings & engravings of the First Bank of the United States, handwritten letters from the Biddle Family Papers, and photographs documenting the run on banks. Other various documents covered the founding of the Bank of North America in 1781, ‘The Bank War’ between banking opponents Andrew Jackson and Nicholas Biddle, and Jay Cooke’s work in financing the Union war effort during the Civil War. A truly inspired journey through history!
