The struggle of business men in the Central Northwest to create banks, to keep them going, and to give them strength is the theme of this book—a study of financial development in a region which crammed into less than a century what often filled a thousand years in older parts of the world. This book is chiefly the history of the two big banking groups of the Twin Cities which were created by the more conservative bankers of the metropolis of the Central Northwest.
