Biography of Lebbeus Chapman
Arizona Biographies





LEBBEUS CHAPMAN, Assistant Cashier of the Valley Bank, the largest bank in Arizona, acquired his fundamental knowledge of banking in the very best school the country affords, one of the large national banks of New York City, The American Exchange National Bank, where he accepted a minor position when but 16 years of age. Here he remained to advance step by step until he became Assistant Credit man, a position which in New York City requires not alone a thorough knowledge of the banking business, hut a complete knowledge of conditions in general and the ability to understand mankind. Mr. Chapman was born in Englewood, N. J., October 6, 1877, and received his education in the public schools of that town and Rutherford, N. J., where his family removed when he was ten years old. He is the son of Nathan Allen Chapman, a direct descendant of Lieut. Lebbeus Chapman of the Revolutionary Army. Mr. Chapman served as Corporal of the 2nd Regiment of New Jersey Volunteers during the war with Spain, is a member of the Spanish War Veterans and the Sons of the American Revolution, and retired as Veteran of the 71st Regiment of the National Guard of New York with the rank of Sergeant. After his return from the Spanish American War he made New York City his home until 1909, when he removed to Colorado, and in 1910 he removed from there to Cheyenne, Wyoming, in both of which cities he held responsible positions in large national banks. His best judgment, however, was gradually gaining the ascendency, and in March, 1911, he came to Arizona and settled in Phoenix. Here his' eminent business qualifications soon won for him the high esteem of all those with whom he has come in contact and his wisdom is apparent from the fact that he has chosen a practically new field in which to give ample scope to his ability and wide experience in banking work. Mr. Chapman was married September 17, 1902, to Miss Lillian Louise Bebus, and they have one daughter Lillian Louise Chapman.
