The Development and Growth of Banks in Putnam County, by Malcolm Romine 
The story of the early banks in Putnam County can be traced back to the 1830s. In this Member's Only book, Malcolm Romine discusses Putnam County Banks including 
the First National Bank, The Central National Bank, Teachers Credit Union, the savings and
loan banks, and the rural banks in the county.

 
Malcolm also discusses the number of bank robberies that have occurred within the county. The robbery of the Central National Bank by the John Dillinger gang in 1933 received national attention, but seven different banks in the county have been robbed for a total of 14 different robberies.
