Allen R. LeRoy





      Allen R. LeRoy, president of the First National Bank of Manchester, was born in that city, November 20, 1887, son of the late Hon. Millard P. LeRoy, a sketch of whom appears elsewhere in this work. He attended the public schools at Manchester and graduated from the high school with the class of 1906. He then traveled for a year in Europe and later became a student in Beloit College, from which he was graduated with the class of 1910. He subsequently took post-graduate work in economics and international law at Berlin, Germany, after which he entered the First National Bank at Manchester, of which his father was president. He became cashier, but was later made vice president and, as he has been familiar with banking for many years, he has an accurate knowledge of both the detailed work necessary in the conduct of a banking institution and also has a broad understanding of those great principles of finance and currency upon which that business is based. Upon the death of his father in 1914, he was elected president of the institution. He has already proven an executive of unusual ability. He is connected with a number of other corporations, including the Manchester & Oneida Railway Company, of which he is treasurer, and the Manchester Light, Heat & Power Company, of which he is vice president.
    Mr. LeRoy is a republican in his political belief and is a member of the Congregational church. He is quite prominent fraternally, being a thirty second degree Mason, a member of the Mystic Shrine, and he also belongs to the Knights of Pythias and the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks.
