History of State Bank of Industry
Bank of Industry was organized on February 2, 1901 by Albert Eads, T. D. Sullivan, and B.F. McLean with $25,000 capital stock. On March 25, 1901, the state of Illinois authorized Bank of Industry to commence business as a banking association. On July 25, 1912, a special stockholders’ meeting was held and the bank’s name was changed to State Bank of Industry.
The first officers of the bank were Albert Eads, president; J.W. Bailey, vice president; T.D. Sullivan, cashier. Eads served as president until his death in 1922, at which time J.W. Bailey was elected president. Bailey was succeeded in 1953 by James C. Bailey, who served for 2 years. Other past presidents that have contributed significantly to the growth of State Bank of Industry include Ernest Price, L.B. Sullivan, H.D. Ewing, Wayne Tatham, Max Swearingen, Marlin France and R Wayne Slaughter.
