Banking and Finance in Cache Valley, 1856-1956

Patricia Kaye Hurren, Utah State University


Having a special interest in banking through her close associates with bankers and practical banking activity, the writer quite naturally gravitated to the field of finance in her search for a thesis problem. While some aspects of the economic history of Cache Valley had been studied, nothing had been done with its financial history. On the eve of Cache Valley's Centennial year, BANKING AND FINANCE IN CACHE VALLEY was thought to be an especially timely subject since source material, much of which time is daily erasing, was available for the study.
