ARTHUR HENRY SEIBIG. Among the well known bankers of Cleveland who have won success and prestige in the financial history of the city is Arthur H.

Mr. Seibig is a native born son of Cleveland, and on his mother's side is descended from the old Hoffman family, pioneers of the West Side, of which family four generations have had part in the affairs of that section of the city. He is the son of the late Jacob J. and Mary (Pastner) Seibig, the father a native of Germany, the mother of Cleveland, as was her father also.

Arthur H. Seibig was born January 29, 1877, and received his educa tion in the public schools of the city. In 1891 he left school to enter the employ of what was then the West Side Banking Company, and from that time to the present he has given his undivided services to that institution, and the history of its growth and development from what was originally the West Side Banking Company into the United Banking & Trust Company of today is the story of the growth and development of its president.
