Community Support Is Our Family’s Legacy
Here’s our family’s story of the source of our great respect for small business people and local communities.
In the early 1950′s, a young man walked into Mound City Trust Company, a bank in downtown St. Louis, to get a loan. He was carrying an old acoustic guitar intended as collateral for the loan. He had learned to play and wanted to buy an electric guitar and amp and start a band. The bank was Mound City Trust Company, and the banker was Oliver Troxler, head of the loan department.
When the young man finished telling his story, Ollie explained that the bank could not accept the guitar as collateral for a loan, but he loaned the funds from his own pocket, at the bank rate, and asked him to make the payment personally each Friday.
The young man was Chuck Berry. He bought an electric guitar and an amp and went to Chicago to find Muddy Waters, who sent him to Chess Records. The rest is music history. Chuck Berry never forgot my father’s kindness to him, and started a weekly visit that lasted more than thirty years. Mary was able to witness this first-hand when she worked in the bank during the summer as a teenager.
“O.E.” Troxler had no way to know when he made a personal loan that his faith would change the world and launch Rock & Roll. But he took a chance and helped him.
There were many others Oliver Troxler helped over the more than 50 years he worked in Mound City Trust Company, at Natural Bridge and Newstead in downtown St. Louis.
BizWebShop is following in the footsteps of Oliver Troxler and others like him, who know small local businesses build strong local communities, and that helps us all. We are dedicated to helping entrepreneurs like Chuck Berry, willing to fearlessly take on great odds.
We understand its not the money that makes us rich, but our connection and responsibility to one another that enriches our lives.
