Historical Checks from Huntington Bank on Display at the Library

A view of the Huntington display

Huntington National Bank will have 30 historical checks from their collection on display in the Michael Schwartz Library through the end of July. The checks were a gift from the late John Sherwin, a director of the former Union Trust Bank, which was acquired by Huntington Bank in the 1980s.

Dating back more than a century, several checks were personally written and signed by U.S. Presidents, including George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Thomas Jefferson to name a few. Also on display is the only check written by a female, Susan B. Anthony and checks by American literary greats such as Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ernest Hemingway, and Mark Twain (signed with his surname, Clemens). Lastly, in honor of Independence Day, a portion of the exhibit is dedicated to iconic figures in American History, including a few who had signed the Declaration of Independence.

The Exhibit is available during Library Summer Hours.

Huntington National Bank is now the official bank of Cleveland State University
