Collection Number: MSS 10490
Quantity: .5 feet
Abstract: Records consist of correspondence, notes, telegrams, and financial statements documenting administration of the bank. The collection consists almost entirely of letters received by bank president E. J. Fairfield in Minneapolis written by his brothers Charles S. (cashier) and R. H. (vice-president) between 1905 and 1917. Gardena was a new town on the SOO Line in 1905 and the letters are richly descriptive of town development and agricultural conditions as well as the financial affairs of the bank.
