IXTY-NINE YEARS AGO a group of merchants on the west side
oflower New York organized a commercial bank and presented it
to the business neighborhood in which they operated. The Irving
of then, with its resources of $300,000, was a modest institution,
built upon the simple lines of the time, democratic, independent,
based upon a definite intention of service. This morning the same
institution, now with resources of nearly $300,000,000, again
presents itself to the business world, still democratic, still inde
pendent, still with a mission of service, still retaining intimate and friendly contact
with its customers, still expressing the spirit of the times. But times have changed. The
commercial spirit ofNew York and America today differs greatly from that of the days when
those west-side merchants firt recognized the need of a bank for their neighborhood.
Then the service of the institution meant only a small section oflower New York,
now it means, the world. The Irving of 1 85 1 could mark the limits of its activities within
a few blocks of the establishment in which its operations were housed. The Irving of 1 9 2 o,
through its long arms of service, reaches our, to every corner of the earth into which the
currents of commerce flow. The Irving of that day possessed only the facilities required
by the needs of a simple neighborhood business. The Irving of today includes within its
equipment every detail of a highly specialized and world-wide banking service.
But the strength of this bank as it stands today has other roots than the single purpose
of its founders. Its development was paralleled by the development of ten other banking
institutions similarly founded, similarly inspired, working along similar lines until, with
the constant expansion of their activities, a union of forces became the obvious thing. In
this way and at different times the New York National Exchange Bank, the Mercantile
National Bank, the National Nassau Bank, and now finally the Irving Trust Company
have joined the Irving National the more effectively to carry out their common purpose.
For over twelveyearsa close working arrangementhas existed between the twolrvings
the Bank and the Trust Company. One has developed along the lines prescribed for
national banks. The other, with wider powers under the state law, developed in addition
personal and corporate trust functions, and added to its operations through successive
mergers the Flatbush Trust Company, the Aetna National Bank, the C ommercial National
Bank of Long Island City, the Market and Fulton National Bank, the Sherman National
Bank and the National City Bank of Brooklyn, each of these retaining its own organiza
tion and location for district office operations.
And now the years of planning and effort bring the Trust Company into the enlarged
institution of today, which, under present Federal law, is able to exercise for the greater
benefit of its customers all of the former facilities of both bank and trust company. Thus
the Irving's development as a clearing house of commerce is further advanced.
During this period of nearly three-quarters of a century, development within the finan
cial institutions which constitute the new Irving has fully kept pace with the development
of the business they have served. Step by stepside by side business and banking growth
in the one paralleled by corresponding growth in the other until now commerce, world
size and complex as it has become, finds itself supplemented and served at every point at
home and abroad by the banking facilities which business judgment has provided.
