F ederal reserve bank 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.
