Aerial view of the residence of Reno Odlin, President of Puget Sound National Bank. Home designed by Lea, Pearson & Richards. Reno Odlin was a ninth generation American, whose family had a background in the ministry and banking. Reno was well educated, thanks to his strong willed ex -school teacher mother Jessie Odlin, and was preparing for a career in law when he joined the army in WW I. After the army, he learned banking from the bottom up as a cashier in the Citizens Bank in Anacortes that his father was reorganizing. In 1928, he took a banking job in Seattle and later in Olympia. He was running the Seattle-First National Bank in Olympia when he was contacted by Puget Sound Bank. Against all advice, he took the job running the small unprofitable bank. By skill and personality, he rescued Puget Sound Bank from the Depression and guided it through wartime & peacetime prosperity. ("Banking on Independence" Provorse)
