History / Biographical Note
Banker. Vice-President and President of National City Bank for two decades ending in 1919.
Frank Vanderlip (1864-1937) began his working life as a reporter, becoming later the financial editor of the Chicago Tribune. From here he became private secretary to Lyman Gage, Secretary of the Treasury, shortly becoming Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, uhich office he held from 1897-1901. Ife next became Vice President of the National City Bank and then President, a post which he occupied until 1919. His two decades at the National City Bank included the Panic of 1907, the Aldrich Report, the beginning of the Federal Reserve System and the financing of World War I, Because Mr. Vanderlip was an intelligent and articulate banker and a student of banking reform, his papers have great value for students of banking and monetary reform in his period.
