The Wulfekuhler State Bank was organized in 1901 with the following officers: H. W. Wulfekuhler, president; A. F. Wulfekuhler, vice president; Otto Wulfekuhler, cashier; and L. H. Wulfekhuler, assistant cashier. The capital stock was $50,000, and June, 1909, the capital stock was increased to $150.000. H. W. Wulfekuhler died August 29, 1903, and Otto H. Wulfekuhler was elected president and E. Rice Phelps was elected cashier June 1, 1915. The present officers are: Otto H. Wulfekuhler, president; E. Rice Phelps, vice president and cashier; L. R. Rutherford, L. A. Miller and Fred A. Walter, assistant cashiers. The present capital stock is $150,000, surplus funds $35,000, and deposits $1,500,000.00. The bank is a conservatively conducted banking institution and the officers and directors are all substantial men, whose integrity and capabilities are well known to the Leavenworth public.

The bank's deposits of $213,000 six months after its organization to more than $1,500,000.00 at the present time, show conclusively that the policy of mutual helpfulness which the bank practices has been a paying one.
