governor, resigning as chancellor of the University to fill a term on
the Territorial Board of Equalization, he was subsequently returned to
his old position as chancellor. In 191 1, on nomination by the governor
of the state, he was invested with the degree of LL. D., "for constant
and conspicuous service to the state and university, for devotion to
every detail of his high office as regent and chancellor."

In 1870 Dr. Freeman was made a Mason, and has since received
every degree in Masonry to and including the thirty-third. He has
been Grand Master of two separate jurisdictions, Nevada and Ari-
zona, an unusual distinction, and President of the Association of Past
Grand Masters of Arizona.

During his years of residence in Arizona, Dr. Freeman has taken
an especial interest in its very early history dating back to Corona-
do's expedition of 1540 a fondness for which has developed into what
may well be termed a hobby, and has acquired an extensive and valu-
able library on this subject, consisting of more than 400 volumes, some
of which are very rare and from one to two hundred years old, many
of them out of print and very difficult to get. What disposition will
ultimately be made of this valuable collection, Dr. Freeman has not
definitely decided, other than that it will never be permitted to leave
Pima County. In knowledge of early events in the history of the
southwest, he probably has no superior in the state, his store of infor-
mation along these lines keeping pace with his accumulation of ma-
terial bearing on the subject.

Having lost his wife, father and mother many years ago, Dr. Free-
man makes his bachelor home in Tucson at the Old Pueblo Club,
which he was largely instrumental in establishing.

WHO S WHO




Albert Steinfeld



IN ARIZONA 221

ALBERT STEINFELD, president of the Consolidated National Bank
of Tucson, has been connected with banking and financial institutions
for a number of years, but it is only during the past three years that he
has become actively identified with actual banking business. Having
had many years of experience in the mercantile business as the presi-
dent and general manager of the large concern which bears his name,
he is in a position to know the financial wants and needs of the public.
Mr. Steinfeld has been a stockholder in banking institutions in Los
Angeles, San Francisco, El Paso and other cities of the Southwest.
He has also been a member of the board of directors of these institu-
tions and was influential in their affairs. Three years ago he was
elected president of the Consolidated National Bank, the oldest and
largest bank in Tucson, and has since given his entire attention to
the bank, his son and brother-in-law, H. J. Donau, having assumed
charge of the mercantile house of Albert Steinfeld & Co.

Albert Steinfeld is a native of Germany, having been born in Han-
over, December 23, 1854. His training and education have been
obtained mainly in this country, however, as the family removed to
New York City when Albert was but eight years of age, and he re-
ceived a liberal education in the public schools. In 1869 he obtained
a position in a large dry goods house, retained the same about two
years and then came west. He located first at Denver, where he was
employed by his uncle in the same line, but in January of 1871, he
proceeded to Tucson, which has since been his home. Here he at
once became connected with the house of L. Zeckendorf & Co., con-
trolled by his uncles, Messrs. A. and L. Zeckendorf, and after several
years of faithful service, was admitted to the firm and for years was
resident partner and manager.

Mr. Steinfeld, being an alert and courteous business man, soon be-
came immensely popular in commercial circles in and about Tucson,
was elected president of the Chamber of Commerce and later vice
president of the Board of Trade when it supplanted the Chamber of
Commerce, and has long been recognized as the head of mercantile
interests in the vicinity.

Mr. Steinfeld has long been identified with the various large
industries in Southern Arizona, and no man has been in closer
touch than he with the development of its resources, not only of
enterprises with which he is directly or indirectly connected, but by
sound advice and assistance afforded in numerous ways to others.
The present firm of Albert Steinfeld & Co. is one of the greatest in
the state, in general merchandise, and their stock is complete and of
excellent quality. The relations existing between the firm and their
employes are most admirable. Mr. Steinfeld is prominent in Ma-
sonic affairs, with which he has been connected for many years. He
was married February 15, 1883, in Denver, Colo., to Miss Bettina V.
Donau, daughter of Simon Donau, of San Francisco, formerly a man-
ufacturer of San Francisco, who died in Los Angeles several years ago.

LEO GOLDSCHMIDT, president of the Eagle Milling Company,
Tucson, and director of the Consolidated National Bank, was born
in Hamburg, Germany, September 16, 1852. He was educated there
in the public schools and came to the United States when seventeen

Zeckendorf & Co., then became established in the furniture business,
in which he continued for several years, and in 1887 he sold out and
purchased an interest in the flour mill in Tucson then owned by E. N.
Fish. One year later he bought out the entire interest of Mr. Fish
and the business was incorporated under the present firm name, The
Eagle Milling Company, which, from a very small beginning has
developed into the largest mill of its kind in Arizona. The mill im-
ports grain from both east and west, but uses as much of the Arizona
product as is obtainable. Not only does the mill manufacture flour,
but it does also a large business in feed and grain. The management
is noted for the fairness and liberality with which it treats its em-
ployees, and the payroll is large, adding considerably to the prosperity
of Tucson. Alfred J. Goldschmidt is associated with his brother in
the business and is vice president of the corporation, of which they
own most of the stock. Monte M. Mansfeld is secretary. Leo

The Phoenix National Bank

THE PHOENIX NATIONAL BANK, one of the safest and most intel-
ligently conducted in the State of Arizona, was organized in 1892.
Its capital stock paid in is $150,000, and its surplus and undivided
profits amount to close to $200,000, while its total resources aggre-
gate almost two and three-quarters millions. The list of assets of this
bank contains a notable item in the total of its loans and discounts,
amounting to about half of its funds, which indicates how well the in-
stitution serves the commercial and agricultural interests of the com-
munity. For years this bank has had a leading place on the roll of
honor among National Banks in the United States.

Physically the bank is equipped in a manner both modern and con-
venient in offices in the center of the business district of Phoenix, and
is easy of access to tourists and residents alike. The Phoenix National
Bank is one of the specially designated depositories for funds of the
United States Government, has the patronage of many leading busi-
ness and professional men, firms and corporations, and by means of its
system of direct communication maintains close relations with Arizona,
New Mexico, and adjacent districts in Old Mexico. Its facilities for
making collections are especially good and the prompt attention ren-
dered affairs of its correspondents causes its services to be exceptionally
satisf acton r . In 1905 this bank was designated a depositary for funds
of the United States Government and its disbursing officers.

The stockholders of The Phoenix National Bank are owners of The
Phoenix Savings Bank and Trust Company, which commenced busi-
ness in 191 1.

The Phoenix Savings Bank and Trust Company, whose capital and
surplus amount to $150,000, has practically the same stockholders and
is under the same management as The Phoenix National Bank. It is,
however, an entirely separate organization from The Phoenix Na-
tional Bank, and occupies entirely different offices. This institution
receives savings accounts upon which 4%, interest is paid, acts as trus-
tee and is empowered to perform all the duties of executors, adminis-
trators, guardians, trustees, committees and the like. It also acts as
escrow agent, registrar, fiscal agent and trustee for corporations and
their bondholders. The officers of the savings bank are: H. J. Mc-
Clung, president; T. E. Pollock and M. C. McDougall, vice presi-
dents; and W. C. Foster, secretary and treasurer.

The officers of The Phoenix National Bank are: H. J. McClung,
president; T. E. Pollock and M. C. McDougall, vice presidents; H.
D. Marshall, Jr., cashier; H. M. Galliver, G. G. Fuller, asst. cash-
iers. The directors are E. B. Gage, H. T- McClung, T. E. Pollock, M.
C. McDougall, H. D. Marshall, L. H. Chalmers, J. S. Douglas, W.
A. Drake and W. F. Staunton. In this list are included some of the
most important financial, commercial and professional interests of the

state. Mr. Pollock is president of the Arizona Central Bank of Flag-
staff, and Mr. Douglas president of The Bank of Douglas, while Mr.
Chalmers is one of the state's most prominent attorneys, and Mr.
Marshall, cashier, is a former national bank examiner.



H. J. McCujNG, of Phoenix, Arizona, president of the Phoenix
National Bank, and president of the Phoenix Savings Bank & Trust
Company, is one of the best known bankers in Arizona. He was born
in Hennepin, Illinois, August 24, 1869. His parents were James S.
and Lois Clark McClung. After having finished the public school
course in Pueblo, Colorado, he started his career as a banker, taking a
position as collector in the First National Bank of Pueblo. He work-
ed through the different departments to the position of assistant cash-
ier, which he resigned in March, 1902, and came to Arizona to take a
position as cashier of the Phoenix National Bank. He was made vice-
president in 1904, succeeding Thomas W. Pemberton. After having
held this position for eight years, he was elected president, April 12,
1912, succeeding E. B. Gage. Under his management, the Phoenix
National Bank has become one of the strongest financial institutions in
the Southwest.

Mr. McClung has taken an active part in the civic life of Phoenix
and has also been prominent in state affairs. He was a member of
the board of directors organized to promote the Arizona State Fair
and the success of this venture was largely due to the efforts of himself
and his colleagues in its behalf. He was on the first paving committee
appointed in Phoenix, and has taken much interest in the promotion
of this and other improvements in his home city.

He was united in marriage with Miss Mattie M. Drake and to
the union have been born two children, Nellie and Billy.



M. C. McDouGALL, vice president and director of the Phoenix
National Bank and vice-president and director of the Phoenix Sav-
ings Bank & Trust Company, was born in Ontario, Canada, October
31, 1858, and spent his boyhood there. After having completed the
common school course of the County of Bruce, he was graduated from
the high school and later spent three years in Saint Catherine's Colle-
giate Institute near Niagara Falls, Ontario. He came to the United
States in January, 1883, and started in the general merchandise busi-
ness in Heppner, Oregon. Six years later, he moved to Puget Sound
and for another span of six years was engaged in the mercantile busi-
ness in that section. The following two years he spent in travel. He
came to Arizona in 1897 and since that time has been actively identi-
fied with the business, social, fraternal and civic life of Phoenix. He
established the McDougal & Cassou Co., clothiers, furnishers and
men's outfitters, which for sixteen years has ranked as one of the best

of its line in the Southwest. During a large part of the time he has
spent in Phoenix, he has been identified with the hanking business.
He was one of the organizers of the Phoenix Savings Bank & Trust




M. C. McDougall

Company, which is affiliated with the Phoenix National Bank. At
the annual meeting held in January, 1911, he was made vice-president
of both banks, and since that time has devoted most of his time to
these institutions. Through his long association with the leading
professional and business men of Arizona, he has become thoroughly
familiar with the financial situation and his appointment to this posi-
tion has proven most beneficial to the bank. Mr. McDougall is of
Scotch descent, his parents, Coll and Ann Clark McDougall, having
been among the pioneer Scotch settlers of Ontario.



HUGH D. MARSHALL, JR., cashier of the Phoenix National Bank
and director of the Phoenix Savings Bank & Trust Company, was

graduated from Princeton University in the class of 1905. Of this
bank his grandfather, H. D. Marshall, was president; his uncle, N.

The National Bank of Arizona

THE NATIONAL BANK OF ARIZONA, the oldest bank in Phoenix,
was established in 1878, and in 1887 was chartered as a national bank
under the name of the National Bank of Arizona, with a capital stock
of $100,000. The capital stock has been increased, however, until
it now amounts to $200,000. The history of this bank has been one
of steady progress, because of the ability and wisdom of its manage-
ment which have won the entire confidence of the public, individual,
firm and corporation.

The National Bank of Arizona conducts its business on the ground
floor of their own building, which is built of brick and concrete, four
stories high, and situated on the corner of Central Avenue and Wash-
ington Street. Their counting rooms have been especially designed
that the business may be carried on with the greatest degree of ease
and safety to customers and the bank itself. Every precaution known
in banking circles has been taken, and their massive steel vaults are
time locked, fire and burglar proof. In addition to that essential in
banking, The National Bank of Arizona has the advantage of a large
capital, sufficient to meet all requirements, and an able and efficient
management under honest and conservative officials.

The active officers of this bank are all substantial men and well
known in Phoenix and vicinity, men of the highest standing as regards
integrity and real worth. Emil Ganz, president, has been a resident of
the Valley for more than thirty years, and at the head of the bank's
affairs for about seventeen years. S. Oberfelder, cashier, came to
Phoenix from Omaha sixteen years ago to accept a position as assist-
ant cashier, and in 1897 he was elected to his present position. His
conduct of affairs during these years is, of itself, sufficient evidence of
