LLOYD B. CHRISTY, cashier of the Valley Bank and Mayor of Phoenix, is one of the best
known bankers in the state, and has had numerous honorary positions in the different bankers' associations of which
he is a member. At present he is the treasurer of the State Bankers' Association. Mayor Christy is the oldest son
of Col. William Christy, head of the Christy family in Arizona, and like his distinguished
father, is a man of high ideals and great force of character, and has the confidence and esteem of all with whom
he comes in contact in business, official or social life. He is practically in charge of the Valley Bank, the greatest
financial institution in Arizona, and it is due to the Christy family's influence that the institution has reached
its present exalted position.
Lloyd Bennett Christy was born in Osceola, Iowa, and received his early education in the schools of that state,
having been graduated from the Des Moines High School. The excellent training of the Iowa schools was supplemented
by a course in the University of California, from which institution he was graduated, being among those receiving
high honors. Mr. Christy is one of the leaders in the civic life of Phoenix. As Mayor he has made an excellent
record, introduced a number of reforms, established a system of economies, and judiciously directed expenditures.
As a result Phoenix is one of the best governed, and in many ways one of the most attractive, cities in the country
today. Gambling and vice have been practically stamped out, and civic reform has reached a high stage owing to
Mayor Christy's strict enforcement of the laws. As a scion of this most noted pioneer family he is a prominent
factor in the social life of Arizona, and his beautiful home on Center street is presided over by one of Phoenix's
most popular and estimable matrons, Mrs. Mary E. Culver Christy, a descendant of another prominent family of Arizona.
Mr. and Mrs. Christy were united in marriage December 25, 1898, and to the union have been born four attractive
daughters, Mary, Doris, Margaret and Katherine.
