The guarantee: P.W. Chavers, banker, entrepreneur, philanthropist in Chicago's Black Belt of the twenties
"THE GUARANTEE rescues from obscurity the story of P.W. Chavers whose most notable achievement is one of great importance to all Americans. He was the author of the Congressional Bill introduced in 1924 to provide for federal guarantee of bank deposits, the earliest legislation for what is now known as the Federal Depositor Insurance Corporation."--BLACK ENTERPRISE, Notable Titles, January, 1988. "The title of this book is the hub of P.W. Chavers' most significant contribution to his people & to his country. His great crusade for the safety of deposits, his ideas about protecting & preserving depositors' bank accounts has now become part of Federal Law. The author's research on her family, & on Chicago politics & economics of the "Roaring Twenties" provides intrinsic human interest. THE GUARANTEE, a well rounded narrative, is highly recommended."--BLACK CAUCUS NEWSLETTER, AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION, January 1985. "An interesting biography written in lively style by the subject's daughter, using her father's notes & pictures assembled more than thirty years ago. Recommended for college & public libraries."--CHOICE MAGAZINE, September 1987. "Chavers-Wright has documented her work with reproductions of newspaper & government documents. It is beneficial that the author decided to write about her father P.W. Chavers. If he were forgotten it would be a great shame."--ARIZONA DAILY STAR, February 1988.
