Amadeo Giannini (1870-1949)
Father of Modern Banking
Amadeo Giannini opened his first bank in a former San Francisco saloon in 1904. Giannini remained open in the aftermath of the devastating 1906 earthquake by placing a wooden plank across two barrels in the street. A decade later, his bank expanded to several branches and was renamed the Bank of America. Giannini is credited with inventing the modern multiple branch network of banking as well as being the first to offer services to the middle and lower income classes.
