This subseries contains material regarding Henry McIlhenny's banking and investment activity and consists primarily of bank statements and correspondence with banks. This material is filed separately, reflecting the original arrangement. Henry McIlhenny's major source of income was from the trust accounts set up by his father at First Pennsylvania Bank, Fidelity Bank and by his mother at Girard Bank. These and other accounts set up at the three institutions make up the bulk of McIlhenny's Philadelphia banking. Significant overseas banking took place at Northern Banking Company in Ireland. McIlhenny also set up checking accounts in other locations he traveled to with frequency, such as Italy, London, Austria, Hawaii and Long Island. Most of the material in this subseries reflects routine transactions. Subject files contain less routine transactions, such as mortgages, funds from sale of Cézanne's "White Sugar Bowl" and the establishment of a unitrust with Harvard University.
Cooke and Bieler, Inc. managed all of McIlhennys investments. This material dates from 1937 to 1984 and includes portfolio summaries and correspondence with investment recommendations, reports and invoices for services rendered.
