  Details1907-1974Defunct Banks Escheat FundsThe defunct bank escheat funds are records of unclaimed funds of defunct banks. When a bank was liquidated receivers were appointed by the Circuit Court to locate depositors or free shareholders to pay them a pro rata share of the funds received from the Receivers based upon the amount of the dividends declared unto them. Chapter 46 of the State Legislative Acts of 1945 provided that funds unclaimed after seven years under the Court's direction, shall be payable to the Mayor and City Council of Baltimore for the benefit of the Public schools. However, the City had to hold the funds in trust so that if any of the claimants or depositors should produce their pass books and assert their claim the City is required to pay them at the pro rata share.BRG65-3
