BRACEY CURTIS, president of the First National Bank of Nogales, was born in Massachusetts in 1870, and is a descendant of a family of old New England stock which was prominently identified with the great manufacturing interests of the East. Mr. Curtis has been a resident of Arizona about 13 years, which he has lived in Nogales. He was first associated with the First National Bank of Nogales as cashier, and his judicious administration in this capacity was an invaluable aid to the bank in its early days. This bank has established a reputation for solidity and ability to meet emergencies that can not be excelled by the oldest banks in the country, regardless of size or location. Mr. Curtis was the delegate from Santa Cruz County to the Constitutional Convention, elected on the Republican ticket, and served on the Legislative, Private Corporations and Banks Committees. He is a public spirited man and has given much of his time and effort to the building up of the community in which he resides, especially in capacity of President of the Nogales Board of Trade. He has also been Chief of the Fire Department, consisting of volunteers, which has by means of his training developed into a splendid organization. He was a member of the committee appointed to select sites for the Territorial Prison and Reform Schools.
