O F DALLAS

Dallas, Texas, July 23,1948

MAP OF
FEDERAL RESERVE DISTRICTS AND BRANCH TERRITORIES,
AND CHECK ROUTING SYMBOLS

To the Bank Addressed:
On or about July 26, 1948, we will mail a map of the United States to each
member bank and par remitting nonmember bank in the Eleventh Federal
Reserve District. The other Federal Reserve banks will also mail a like map to
each member bank and par remitting nonmember bank in their districts.
The map is 42 by 28 inches in size and is printed on paper sufficiently heavy
so that it may be mounted or framed if desired. The map shows, among other
things, the State boundaries, principal cities and railroad lines and, in contrast­
ing colors, the various Federal Reserve districts and branch territories. Each
Federal Reserve bank and branch city is also clearly indicated. On the margin
of the map is a list of the check routing symbols now assigned to the par
remitting banks in each Federal Reserve district, including the symbols used
to identify immediate-credit items, deferred-credit items, items collectible
through special collection arrangements, and items which may be routed option­
ally to more than one Federal Reserve bank or branch for collection.
We believe that this map will be of interest to you and should prove to be
a useful supplement to the Check Routing Symbol Plan, particularly in connec­
tion with the sorting of checks payable in those States, commonly referred to
as “split States,” which are not wholly within the territory of one Federal
Reserve bank or branch.
Yours very truly,
R. R. GILBERT
President
