Henry C. Copeland

Henry C. Copeland (1854-1933)  President and one of the founders of New York’s Riverside Bank.  Bank was known for its clientele of “wealthy women on the upper west side,” according to the Times.  Bank was also known for a headline-making robbery in 1902, when a 23-year-old teller absconded with $26,000, money going directly from depositors into his pant pockets.  Copeland had just given the teller a raise, up to $900/year.  Copeland resigned as bank president shortly after the teller’s arrest.
