ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the efforts of A. P. Giannini, founder of California-based Bank of America and Transamerica Corp., to recover his business. It cites that a decline in stock market in 1931 contributed to the failure of Giannini's banks and several subsidiaries. In 1933 and 1934, he resumed paying annual dividends despite an operating loss to the U.S. Comptroller of the Currency. He has allowed the Security and Exchange Commission investigators to examine the Transamerica accounting records.
