Nomination and Election of Directors
(By member banks in Group 2 only, that is, member banks with capital
and surplus of more than $300,000 and less than $10,000,000).
To Member Banks in the Second Federal Reserve

District:

In accordance with the provisions of section 4 of the Federal Reserve Act, as amended, and
circular No. 2845, dated September 29, 1944, in regard to election of directors of this bank for terms of office
from January 1, 1945, to December 31, 1947, to succeed WILLIAM J. FIELD, class A director, and FREDERICK
E. WILLIAMSON, formerly class B director, there are given on pages 2 and 3 the names of the candidates
nominated for such directors, indicating by whom nominated.
To each bank in Group 2, except banks affiliated with holding company affiliates which have designated another bank to participate in this election*, the following are being sent with this circular:
(a)
(b)
(c)
(d)

Preferential ballot for use in voting for candidates for class A director and class B director.
Colored ballot envelope in which the ballot is to be sealed.
Certificate envelope bearing on its face the certificate in regard to the vote.
Addressed envelope in which all of the foregoing should be returned to me.

The ballot and certificate on the certificate envelope must be executed by an officer who has been
authorized to cast the vote. A list showing the officers designated for this purpose by the respective
member banks in Group 2 was attached to the above mentioned circular dated September 29, 1944, and a
similar list amended to October 28, 1944, is attached to this circular beginning at page 4. In order that the
ballot may be secret, the name of the bank and the name and title of the voting officer should not be written
on the ballot, but should be written only on the certificate envelope.
(1) After the preferential ballot has been marked,
(2) It should be placed in the colored ballot envelope and that envelope sealed.
(3) Then the sealed colored ballot envelope should be placed within the certificate envelope,
and the certificate envelope should be sealed and the certificate thereon executed.
(4) Then the certificate envelope containing the sealed colored ballot envelope should be
returned to me in the enclosed addressed envelope.
The law provides that the ballot shall be cast within 15 days after receipt of the list of candidates
transmitted herewith. The polls will open on November 2, 1944, and will close at 12 o'clock noon, on Friday,
November 17, 1944, and in order to be counted as valid the ballot must be received by me at or before
the latter time. Upon the closing of the polls the ballot box will be opened in the board room of this bank,
the sealed envelopes containing the ballots will be opened, the votes counted and checked by tellers and the
results of the election announced. The candidates are invited to be present or represented on this occasion.
The banks in Groups 1 and 3 will not vote in this election, and this circular is sent to them without
forms for their information only.
BEARDSLEY RUML,

Chairman of the Board.
* As indicated in circular No. 2845, dated September 29, 1944, section 4 of the Federal Reserve Act, as amended, provides 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 the election of directors of Federal reserve banks shall
be confined to one of such banks, and the holding company affiliate may designate the bank to participate in such election.
Consequently, the ballot of any bank in Group 2 so affiliated cannot be counted as valid unless there is on file with me
evidence that such bank has been so designated.
