FEDERAL RESERVE BANK
OF NEW YORK

Circular No. 2 8 5
CSeptember 26, 21941"1j

Nomination and Election of Directors

To Member Banks in the Second Federal Reserve District:

An election will be held under the provisions of section 4 of the Federal Reserve Act, as
amended, to choose successors to the following directors of this bank whose terms will expire
December 31, 1941: class A director, OTIS A. THOMPSON, President, The National Bank and
Trust Company of Norwich, Norwich, N. Y., and class B director, WALTER C. TEAGLE, Chairman,
Board of Directors, Standard Oil Company (New Jersey), New York, N. Y.
Both directors were elected by member banks in Group 2 and their successors will be
chosen by this group. The member banks in Groups 1 and 3 do not elect directors this year
and will not participate in this election.
The classification of member banks for the purpose of nomination and election of class A
and B directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York is as follows:
Group 1 consists of banks with capital and surplus of $10,000,000 and over;
Group 2, of banks with capital and surplus of more than $300,000 and less than $10,000,000 (listed
on pages 3-8); and
Group 3, of banks with capital and surplus of $300,000 and less.
Except in the case of two or more banks affiliated with the same holding company affiliate*,
each bank in Group 2 is permitted to nominate a candidate for class A director and a candidate

•Section 4 of the Federal Reserve Act, as amended, reads in part as follows:
" . . .
That whenever any two or more member banks within the same Federal reserve district are affiliated with
the same holding company affiliate, participation by such member banks in any such nomination* or election shall be
confined to one of such banks, which may be designated for the purpose by such holding company affiliate."
Accordingly, banks in Group 2 affected by the foregoing provision of the law are requested to take prompt
action to have the appropriate holding company affiliate designate, if it has not already designated, one of its affiliated banks to participate in this nomination and election.




for class B director. ** The nominations should be made by resolution of the boards of directors
of the nominating banks and certified copies of such resolutions should be sent to me so as to
reach me on or before October 27,1941. The enclosed printed forms show the appropriate forms
of resolution and one copy of each form should be used in sending certified copies of the resolutions to me.
On October 29, 1941, copies of the list of candidates (indicating by whom nominated) and
preferential ballots will be mailed so that, in the normal course of the mails, they will be
received by all banks in Group 2 on October 30, 1941. The law provides that the ballot shall
be cast within 15 days after receipt of this list. The polls will open on October 30, 1941, and
will close at 12 o'clock noon on Friday, November 14, 1941. Upon the closing of the polls
the ballot box will be opened in the board room of this bank, the votes counted and checked
by tellers, and results of the election announced. The candidates will be invited to be present
or represented on that occasion.
In order to be counted as valid, the ballot must be executed by an officer authorized to
cast the vote and must be received by me at or before the time thus fixed for the closing of
the polls (i.e., at or before 12 o'clock noon on Friday, November 14, 1941). The list on
the following pages shows the officers heretofore designated for this purpose by the respective
banks in Group 2.
The banks in Groups 1 and 3 will not participate in this election, and this circular is sent
to them without forms for their information only.
BEARDSLEY BTJML,

Chairman of the Board.

••Section 4 of the Federal Reserve Act, as amended, reads in part as follows:
"Class A shall consist of three members, who shall be chosen by and be representative of the stock-holding banks.
. . . No officer or director of a member bank shall be eligible to serve as a class A director unless nominated and
elected by banks which are members of the same group as the member bank of which he is an officer or director.
"Any person who is an officer or director of more than one member bank shall not be eligible for nomination as a
class A director except by banks in the same group as the bank having the largest aggregate resources of any of those
of which such person is an officer or director."
"Class B shall consist of three members, who at the time of their election shall be actively engaged in their
district in commerce, agriculture or some other industrial pursuit. . . . No director of class B shall be an officer,
director, or employee of any bank."
"No Senator or Eepresentative in Congress shall be a member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Beserve
System or an officer or a director of a Federal reserve bank."
In a resolution adopted December 23, 1915, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System expressed
the opinion "that persons holding political or public office in the service of the United States, or of any State,
territory, county, district, political subdivision, or municipality thereof, or acting as members of political party
committees, cannot consistently with the spirit and underlying principles of the Federal Reserve Act, serve as
directors or officers of Federal Reserve Banks." On December 28, 1915, the Board of Governors of the Federal
Reserve System resolved that "national bank examiners shall not hereafter be elected • • • to directorships in
Federal Reserve Banks." Under date of July 2, 1925, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System
advised it had "reached the conclusion that a person whose sole occupation is that of officer of an insurance company is not eligible for election as a Class B director of a Federal Reserve Bank", and on October 18, 1939, the
Board advised "that a person whose sole occupation is that of president of a Federal savings and loan association
and who has been serving as a class A director is not now eligible for election and service as a class B director".
