KANSAS CITY SCOUT CLIP
This recent Kansas City online clip is a corporate bank promo BUT there's still some nice old school local footage to witness along with a few interesting words regarding local history.
The bank adopts a Kansas City icon- "The Scout"
"An Indian scout was alert and, through experience and skill, was ahead of the rest of his people in knowledge of the country. The Scout is a symbol of the kind bank I want to run."- R. Crosby Kemper Sr.
That statement became the principle by which City Bank & Trust adopted the locally famous "scout" symbol as its trademark in 1933. It was inspired by "The Scout" sculpture in Penn Valley Park, a Kansas City icon created by sculptor Cyrus Dallin. The Scout was a larger-than-life American Indian sitting bareback on a horse peering toward the horizon.
Over the years, The Scout has represented City Bank & Trust, City National Bank & Trust and later UMB Bank and UMB Financial Corporation.
And that's all very reassuring for all the money that locals DON'T have in the bank.
