Bank History Trivia Contest

Hosted by JPMC Archives Department


Two dozen alumni from all over the United States and England enjoyed an entertaining and elucidating interactive online trivia contest, hosted just for the CAA by members of the JPMC Archives Department, on Tuesday, February 16, 2021.


Harry Tether and Ken Jablon tied as winners, followed by Ronald Mayer, non-alumna CAA webmaster Andrea Axelrod and Janine Campos. All will be invited for a private tour of the JPMC Archives post-pandemic. 


As a CAA officer, Jablon recused himself from the top prize, so Tether received the $200 Amazon gift card.


The approximate hour-long session began with a 15-minute presentation by archivists, followed by 45 minutes of interactive antics that tested knowledge of bank history.
