1935 Print Record First Boston Coggeshall Securities Act Book New York City FZ2


This is an original 1935 halftone print of the retail sales from the First Boston Corporation. The caption writes, "The record of First Boston's retail sales of new bond issues is kept in Vice President Coggeshall's 'black book.' Since June, 1934, when the Securities Act of 1933 was amended, relaxing the original rules which choked the underwriting business, Mr. Coggeshall's book has shown a rapid growth of loose leaves." The bank was founded in 1932 in New York City, and in 1990, was acquired by Credit Suisse. Photography by R. H. Hoffmann.
