"I am charged with representing an institution that in the minds of some people seems to be the very fangs and claws of the 'Money Trust.' 

"I decline quietly to be tagged a discredited citizen, or to come before you with an apology for the business in which I am engaged."

About this site

     Frank Vanderlip was a well-known, newsworthy man of his time who has been somehow overlooked in the history of the early 20th century. This site hopes to correct that situation with an on-going set of stories drawn from Frank's own writings, from historical newspaper articles, and from privately written accounts of those who knew him personally. It is maintained by the author of "Frank A. Vanderlip - The Banker Who Changed America", the only full biography of Frank's life.
