DUBUQUE NATIONAL BANK. Established and incorporated on March 19, 1884, the Dubuque National Bank was located at 599 Main Street. The original officers were Benjamin Billings RICHARDS, president; William J. KNIGHT, vice president; and James HARRAGAN, cashier. It was still located there in 1915 when the officers included Dorrance Dixon MYERS, president and cashier; J.F. Harragan, assistant cashier; and George J. Horman, assistant cashier.

After it had acquired CITIZENS' STATE BANK (THE), Dubuque National was acquired in 1923 by SECOND NATIONAL BANK.
