Citibank

The City Bank of New York was founded on June 16, 1812.[6] The first president of the City Bank was the statesman and retired Colonel, Samuel Osgood. In August 1813, with Osgood’s death, William Few became President of the Bank, staying until 1817, followed by Peter Stagg (1817–1825), Thomas Smith (1825–1827), Isaac Wright (1827–1832), and Thomas Bloodgood (1832–1843). Ownership and management of the bank was taken over by Moses Taylor in 1837, a protégé of John Jacob Astor and one of the giants of the business world in the 19th century. During Taylor’s ascendancy, the bank functioned largely as a treasury and finance center for Taylor’s own extensive business empire.[7] Later presidents of the bank included Gorham Worth (1843–1856), Moses Taylor himself (1856–1882), Taylor’s son-in-law Patrick Pyne, and James Stillman (1891–1909). The bank also has the distinguishable history of financing war bonds for the war of 1812, serving as a founding member of the financial clearing house in New York (1853), underwriting the Union, during the American Civil War with $50 million in war bonds, opens the first foreign exchange department of any bank (1897), and received a $5 million deposit to be given to Spain for the US acquisition of the Philippines (1899). In 1865, the bank joined the national banking system of the United States under the National Bank Act and became The National City Bank of New York. By 1868, it was one of the largest banks in the United States, by 1893 it was the largest bank in New York, and following year it was the largest within the United States. In later years it would help finance the Panama Canal (1904) and Stillman, then the bank’s chairman, would intervene, along with J. P. Morgan and George Fisher Baker, in the Panic of 1907.
