m i tli mm MEETING and B M Q U E T r\M THE NEW YORK CREDIT MEN’ S ASSOCIATION W T HOTEL ASTOR, February 17,1949 at 6:30 p. The For twelve years (1936-1948) M arriner S. Eccles was chairm an of the board of governors of the Federal Reserve System of which he continues to be a member. He is noted and highly respected as a pub lic figure who consistently and co u rage ously, "calls the strikes as he sees them." O ne of the nation's best known movie com edians and troupers, G u y Kibb ee was 15 years old when he ran away from home to join up with his brother's stock com pany. H e made his first fo otligh t ap pe ar ance when the juvenile lead in "The C o n vict's Daughter" was overwhelmed by spiritous potions. H is debut was, however, slightly marred by the to o -tjght suit he had to wear which almost split down the m iddle in his big romantic scene! Few speakers are as keenly aware of the factors which are responsible for ebbs and tides in our econom ic life as is M arriner Eccles. N o theorist, he is a p ractical— and successful— business executive who owned and operated as many as 28 banks and a whole string of sugar, lumber and construction com panies in his native Utah. G u y K ibb e e has played the country, from M aine to San Francisco, in onenight stands— and has washed many a dish in lieu of cash to pay for meals.
