George Gilbert Williams

In a post on Thursday, we mentioned George Gilbert Williams, a president of the Chemical National Bank. In his May 8, 1903 obituary in the New York Times, it is mentioned that,

"if he was in he did not believe in the policy of sending word that he was out. Politeness was one of his requirements in all walks of life..."
A Credit Bubble Stocks correspondent writes in,
The old and sorely missed Protestant Establishment!
Further - G.G. Williams had a chapter, "The Bank Clerk" in the book Modern Achievement.
The foundation of every great institution lies in the character of the man or men controlling it, and not in the material things which are behind it.
