Honor Accorded Bank Official
October 15, 1946

At a ceremony Tuesday afternoon at the local branch of the Bank of America, Arthur J. Mathews was tendered a service pin, which made him a member of the Bank of America Quarter Century Club. The presentation was made by the bank’s Susanville president, C. H. Bridges, in the presence of the bank staff; his brother, C. D. Mathews, county treasurer, and sister, Mrs. Albert Bantley.

Mr. Mathews is now assistant cashier working out of the Chico district office of the Bank of America, and is a key man, often assuming manager responsibilities in the banks in the area during vacations.

A native of Plumas county, Mr. Mathews moved to Susanville with his parents in 1916, and is a veteran of the two World Wars, serving in the navy.
