H. J. McCLUNG, of Phoenix, Arizona, president of the Phoenix National Bank, and president of the Phoenix Savings
Bank & Trust Company, is one of the best known bankers in Arizona. He was born in Hennepin, Illinois, August
24, 1869. His parents were James S. and Lois Clark McClung. After having finished the public school course in Pueblo,
Colorado, he started his career as a banker, taking a position as collector in the First National Bank of Pueblo.
He worked through the different departments to the position of assistant cashier, which he resigned in March, 1902,
and came to Arizona to take a position as cashier of the Phoenix National Bank. He was made vice president in 1904,
succeeding Thomas W. Pemberton. After having held this position for eight years, he was elected president, April
12, 1912, succeeding E. B. Gage. Under his management, the Phoenix National Bank has become one of the strongest
financial institutions in the Southwest.
Mr. McClung has taken an active part in the civic life of Phoenix and has also been prominent in state affairs.
He was a member of the board of directors organized to promote the Arizona State Fair and the success of this venture
was largely due to the efforts of himself and his colleagues in its behalf. He was on the first paving committee
appointed in Phoenix, and has taken much interest in the promotion of this and other improvements in his home city.
He was united in marriage with Miss Mattie M. Drake and to the union have been born two children, Nellie and Billy.
