Both lauded as the great bank of the West and reviled as a huge financial octopus, the Bank of America introduced several modern banking practices during the Great Depression, which played an integral role in Californias development. Sarah Quincy will discuss her research on the impacts of this unusual bank on the states economy during the 1920s and 1930s.
