A Sainted Businessman


In the early 1990s, I was appointed by the Governor of Texas to the State Depository Board, where I served with the State Treasurer, State Banking Commissioner, and State Controller. We wrestled with the collapsing Texas Savings & Loan Associations, which had wrecked the Texas economy so badly. I was there when the legendary Bill Seidman arrived with the federal Resolution Trust Corporation. It was like Moses parting the sea. It was an experience I’ll never forget. Bill Seidman was a man I’ll never forget. America has lost one of those great businessmen, who made the life of every American even better, even though they’ll never know.
