L. W. Niles

Lewis Walter Niles, cashier of the Atlantic National Bank, was born in Bureau county, Illinois, August 25, 1855, and lived there until he was six years old, when his parents moved to Neponset, Ill., and afterward to Kewanee. He was employed by the First National Bank of Kewanee in 1872. In 1874 he went to Chicago and was employed by the Central National Bank of that city for five years. He then went with his father to Brookfield, Mo., and engaged with his father in the general merchandise business. At the end of three years he went to Golden City, Mo., and into the banking and general merchandise business, then back to Brookfield, where he remained three years. He was then called to Pender, Neb., where he was chashier of the Pender State Bank for two years and came to Atlantic in May of 1905 and accepted a position as assistant cashier of the Atlantic National Bank. April 15, 1900, he was appointed cashier, and has held that position ever since. He is recognized as one of the best bank cashiers in this country and has held the good opinion of the public while satisfying the various boards of directors. He is a Mason and an Elk and is school treasurer. He knows when to say no and when to say yes, and his ability is written in the bank's surplus and in its standing as a financial institution.
