First and Citizens National Bank, D. Victor Meekins, and Suzanne Scott Finding Aids

There are several new finding aids on the Outer Banks History Center (OBHC) website:

First and Citizens National Bank Minute Book, 1933-1969 (pdf)
Due to its location, growth in trade, and ability to supply retail stores throughout the eastern Albemarle area, Elizabeth City, North Carolina was able to open two new banks in the 1890s – the First National Bank in 1891, and the Citizen’s Bank in 1899. These two financial institutions greatly expanded banking practices in the area and strengthened their positions by merging in 1918. This collection consists of a single minute book and includes records of the history of the bank, its directors, administrators, board members, and stockholders. It shows a record of loan approvals and rejections. (1 minute book and 1 folder of reports, resolutions, correspondence)
