Artist Roscoe Misselhorn created this "Flow of Checks" mural in 1957 for the St. Louis Fed. The mural, which was painted on the east wall of the Collection Department, depicts how paper checks were processed by the Federal Reserve Banks and their Branches in an era before electronic processing.
Diversity is critical to the Federal Reserve, and we are firmly committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive culture throughout the Federal Reserve System. Collections within FRASER contain historical language, content, and descriptions that reflect the time period within which they were created and the views of their creators. Certain collections contain objectionable content—for example, discriminatory or biased language used to refer to racial, ethnic, and cultural groups. These viewpoints and attitudes are inconsistent with our values, but the original descriptions are retained to ensure that they are not erased from the historical record.
