Abstract: The Cleveland Clearing House Association is a bank check clearinghouse founded in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1858. It also conducted periodic bank examinations and aided in the campaign to locate a branch of the Federal Reserve in Cleveland, coordinated political lobbying efforts and public marketing and information campaigns on behalf of the banking community and led the effort to transition from a paper-based payment system to an electronic/computer-based system. The Cleveland Clearing House Association has also coordinated the philanthropic efforts of member banks by creating a system for the non-profit community to submit project proposals to the Clearing House to be considered by all member banks for a unified funding decision. The collection consists of agendas, bank statements, budgets, constitutions, correspondence, financial statements, income tax returns, invoices, legal briefs and opinions, lists, magazine articles, memoranda, minutes, newspaper clippings, notes, press releases, proposals, publications, receipts, reports, resolutions, rules and regulations, a telegram and worksheets.
