ARTHUR C. TRUMBO
The development and success of the MUSKOGEE NATIONAL BANK is attributable in no small measure to Arthur C. Trumbo, an alert, energetic and farsighted business man, who in financial circles has made a most creditable name and place for himself. He was born on a farm in Allen County, Ohio, on August 6, 1866, and attended the country schools until he reached the age of seventeen, when he began teaching and soon afterward was made principal of the Columbus Grove High School at Columbus Grove, Ohio. Desirous of enjoying still further educational advantages himself, he later became a student in the normal school at Ada, Ohio, and afterward attended the Tri-State Normal School at Angola, Indiana, the Wooster University at Wooster, Ohio, and the Leland Stanford University of California, winning his Bachelor's degree upon the completion of a literary and scientific course in 1894. He afterward pursued the study of law at Northwestern University in Chicago and in 1896 was graduated with the degree of Bachelor of Laws. He at once entered upon the active practice of law in Chicago, there following the profession until 1901.
Early in 1901, A.W. Patterson and his son-in-law, Mr. A.C. Trumbo, arrived in the city and started the Bank of Muskogee in a little box house about twelve feet square, at the southwest corner of Second and Okmulgee Streets. Three years later they erected the IOWA BUILDING, a substantial four-story brick building on the same corner, and the rapidly growing bank was given better quarters in the new building. By the way, the IOWA BUILDING installed the first elevator in the city and the natives, for many months, regarded it with feelings of awe and fear. Oftentimes, they would climb the several flights of stairs rather than take chances in landing safely via the elevator. The buisness of the BANK OF MUSKOGEE increased rapidly and on February 10, 1908, it became the MUSKOGEE NATIONAL BANK. In 1916 this bank brought the five-story MID-CONTINENT BUILDING, at the northwest corner of Third Street and Broadway, and in 1918 the bank moved into its new location, where it is still conducting its extensive business. Within a month after this last removal, Mr. Patterson died and Mr. Trumbo succeeded him as president of the bank.
A.C. Trumbo was one of the most enthusiastic boosters of Muskogee. He was and early advocate of the navigation of the Arkansas River to prove that it was navigation in order to obtain a reduction in freight rates. He and his father-in-law, A.W. Patterson built the CONVENTION HALL to attract the TRANS-MISSISSIPPI CONGRESS, November 19-22, 1907, and he was secretary of the organization.
He was president of the MUSKOGEE CLEARING HOUSE in 1909 and cashier of the MUSKOGEE NATIONAL BANK from 1909 until 1916 when he became its president. He was the organizer of a bank at Okay, Oklahoma.
