I was an early customer of University National Bank, when they had their first office at Lytton and Florence. Carl Schmitt sent an invitation to the bank's customers to come in one evening for a slide show of his then-recent trip to China. They had a bunch of chairs set up in the lobby area, and served punch and cookies. Not many bankers do things like that nowadays.

My husband (who is now deceased) had a graphic design business in the late 70's early 80's in Palo Alto and became a customer of University National Bank - we were treated well which included being invited to the bank's many special functions - which included receiving a bag of Walla Walla onions. I just found this website because, as one of the many special thank you gifts the bank sent to their business customers was a series of cards that had printed specific information about other banks and special dates in history and I just found a few of them - I'd like to know if these have any value, and/or should I keep them?
I would appreciate any information anyone could supply in reference to these printed cards. On the "Hapy Anniversary" info card of one of these series I have states "Best Wishes" from Chairman, Carl J. Schmitt and President, Herbert C. Foster.
