DUBUQUE SAVINGS INSTITUTION. The Dubuque Savings Institution was established in February, 1866, with $100,000 capital and George A. Blanchard, president, and Richard A. BABBAGE, secretary and treasurer.

Located at Main and 5th STREETS, this financial institution was listed in the 1868-69 and 1870-71 directories but not afterwards. See: BANKS AND BANKING

In January 1874, Hancock paid $4,500 in cash to company, the full extent of his liability to the depositors as a stockholder of the company. This allowed the receiver to pay off the 20% dividend declared on January 24, 1874.
